Here is a quick resource that I want to share with you. I actually found out about this resource today (late this afternoon). The resource is a youth ministry podcast called: “The Youth Ministry Oddcast.” I am down with listening to podcast so I figured a youth ministry podcast, I will check it out. So, I began downloading some of the podcast, and was very impressed with the student ministry conversations that these guys are having. Here is 4 things that I enjoyed about listening to a few sessions from the Youth Ministry Oddcast this afternoon (BTW: I have subscribed, and will listen regularly):
- It is not scripted.
- It is real life practical conversations from student ministry guys. The conversations that they are having are conversations that I regularly have with other student pastors. Also, much of what I heard in their podcast was something that I have thought about or read about.
- It is given from different perspectives. You will find a middle school pastor, a student ministry professor, and a student ministries missionary. You are given different perspectives. It is not just 3 student pastors discussing ideas.
- These guys keep the main thing (The Gospel) at the core of their ideas and conversations.
