Kia ora, friends! As I write this I am amazed at how quickly this year has just flown by. We finished up Youth for the year last week, opting for a Progressive Dinner instead of an Awards Dinner like we had last year. It’s been a big (and kinda messy) year for us and our students, and I think it’s safe to say we are all ready for our summer break.
It has been so cool to finish out the year on the blog with our Real Life Youth Ministry series. I have loved it so much and hope that you have too! I loved hearing about ministry happening in different cultures and contexts, and the different ways people are motivated to push through when they’d really just love to have a night off. There were so many encouraging and inspiring stories! In case you missed any, find the Real Life Youth Ministry series here. Hopefully this is something we can continue in 2018 too!
So to wrap up the year today: here’s the top posts from 2017, our favourites from the year, and the all-time favourites from our readers.
