Maintaining a Sense of Self

With all the demands and challenges of ministry sometimes you get lost and you forget why you decided to do youth ministry in the first place. To avoid that in my own life, I follow a few simple rules...

Events Are For You Too

We all know that building friendship isn't easy to do in our crazy day-to-day world.
