Kyle, Matt, and Linda welcome Mitchell Chase back to the podcast for a second time. He discusses his new book "Hope for All the Earth: Understanding The Story of the Old Testament" and the importance of teaching the Old Testament to students. Mitchell helps us to see the Old Testament as the Bible that Jesus read and knew, and its importance for our own lives. He encourages listeners to help students understand the larger biblical story and how the Old Testament fits into it. With that in mind, themes of exile, sacred space, and redemption are discussed to help us see the Old Testament in a big picture way.
This year we will focus some episodes directed specifically towards Youth Ministry and the you 'Youth Ministers.' These episodes will be short (around 30 to 40 minutes) to hopefully showcase some of the challenges youth ministers come into and an opportunity to learn from the ups and downs of the ministers we have on the show. We have invited ministers who have had at least 10 years of experience in ministry to talk about certain topics or pitfalls of ministering to the young people.In this Youth Ministry Moment episode titled, "Short Season / Long Game" our guest is Melissa Acosta; the Youth & Young Adult Minister as well as Music Minister at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Melissa has been active in youth ministry since 2012 starting at Sacred Heart Catholic Church before moving to Sts. Peter & Paul. A music minister, worship leader, wife and devoted mother of two, Melissa has many talents. She is a gifted singer, speaker and shares her love and knowledge of the Lord and His Church.

On this episode of Catholic Forum, after a news update from The Dialog, we talk to Mr. Dan Pin, Director for Catholic Youth, Young Adult and Family Ministry for the Diocese of Wilmington, about the February 3, 2023 Damacus Camp's Jesus Night. Jesus Night is a faith-awakening event for middle school and high school youth focused on a joy-filled Eucharistic encounter. The night is centered around praise and worship, quality spirtual speakers, and of course, Eucharistic Adoration. We will also learn a little about St. Francis de Sales, the patron saint of the Diocese of Wilmington.
Kyle and Matt have a variety of ministry experiences, but primarily served as student and senior pastors.

TBC focus is Christ-centered, Scripture-driven, and student-focused. And the best way to experience TBC is to attend its Spring Preview Day on March 31.Tour the campus, speak with faculty members, chat with fellow students, and experience the unique campus community of Texas Baptist College during Spring Preview Day.Register today at texasbaptistcollege.com/preview

Leadership skills are extremely important when it comes to youth ministry. Churches need trained youth pastors to keep their youth groups engaged, growing in their faith, and reaching new students. Youth Pastors need to be able to motivate their leaders and volunteers, communicate effectively, and shepherd their students. In order to be a successful youth minister, it is important to develop these leadership traits early on in your ministry career, but it's also never too late to sharpen your skills. In this episode, we discuss multiple ways to level up your leadership skills in youth ministry so that you can succeed at maintaining health in your ministry and in your own life. **There were originally 5 points for this episode; however, we accidentally skipped the 3rd point.

It's another episode of Youth Ministry Booster with Chad Higgins and Zac Workun. In this episode they talk about why numbers actually do matter.They talk about why youth ministry feels like it needs more numbers, and how to find better ones. They discuss importance of getting below the surface of what the numbers mean and what you are really looking to track if you want a healthy youth ministry.They are here to encourage you to delve a little deeper into what you desire when you say grow and if you have thought it down all the way to the most basic unit.Tracking - what's the number you are recording.Consistency- what's the interval you are measuring.Discipline- what's the habit that is forming.Growth- what's the goal for the tracking.Follow up with our team! https://studentministry.lifeway.com/Join us for a preaching event like no other!https://www.lifeway.com/experienceLet's hang out in your town!https://studentministry.lifeway.com/s...Support the show
"Happiness is good medicine..." (Proverbs 17:22 ERV) Emotions are there for a reason. If we know what each emotion in our lives is there for then we are able to identify how to respond correctly to each emotion instead of reacting to the emotions in a way that they control us. Episode 76 of the Youth Worker On Fire Podcast is where this theme first came from, while interviewing a world changer who grew up in a violent alcoholic family. Maury and his wife grew up in homes of alcoholic parents. His healing knowledge of what it took to finally deal with it emotionally is worth taking notes on. Happy, Sad, Mad, or Glad… and sometimes Scared or Numb (according to OliveMe Counseling). "Good things happen to those who learn from their experiences…” (Proverbs 16:20 ERV) _______________________________ Looking for a new student ministry resource?

Brian Sorgenfrei, formerly of RUF, and current pastor at CPC Oxford, joins Kyle, Matt, and Linda in a great discussion about teaching the Bible to high school and college students. Brian suggests that we not only need to ask great questions of the text, but we need to be asking the questions that students themselves might be asking. Doing so helps make the Bible compelling to students. They also enter a conversation about family dynamics, relationships at home, and building trusting relationships between students and adults.
Some people say contextualization is a compromise of the gospel. Others say it's just unnecessary, and we just need to preach the gospel. Both of those opinions misunderstand what contextualization actually is. In this episode of the YPT Podcast, we're focusing on the gospel and culture, and discussing contextualization as an expression of faithful gospel proclamation in your particular culture. What is contextualization, and what are some common misunderstandings people can have about it? What is the unchanging gospel? I've heard you talk about the Eastern, Western, and Tribal cultures and how those cultures lead to different types of gospel presentations. Could you share a little about that as an example of what you mean by faithful contextualization? Are there a few basic principles that can help youth workers avoid over-contextualizing and under-contextualizing? What does gospel contextualization look like in youth ministry?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE: The next Women in Youth Ministry Conference is coming up, and our Conference Team asked that I (Heather Kenison) publish the keynotes from last year so that you all could get a glimpse of what is in store. In this first keynote, I have the privilege of sharing my testimony, why I created Women in Youth Ministry, and the values that we hold as an organization that you will experience at the conference. The feedback I heard after this keynote was incredible -- women saying that they never went to a conference before that cared about their safety, valued diversity and displayed it, and created space for vulnerability. My hope is that this episode explains exactly what WYM is like as an organization. ABOUT HEATHER: Heather serves at St. Luke's UMC in Indianapolis as the Director of Student Ministries, leading a diverse team of staff and volunteers at one of the biggest UMC churches in the country. Heather is also the Founder & CEO of Women in Youth Ministry, an organization that celebrates the leadership of women. A certified leadership coach, Heather's two biggest passions are youth ministry and youth pastors. In her free time, Heather is obsessed with makeup, competition reality television, “cozy” gaming, and personality tests. She is married to PJ and they live in Indianapolis with their three beloved pets. You can follow Heather everywhere online @heatherlea17 and at https://heatherleakenison.blog/ where she occasionally puts out content. Sign up for the Women in Youth Ministry Conference!

In youth ministry, the goal is to bring students into a closer relationship with Jesus.

Adding people to the Kingdom of God is one of the biggest goals of ministry. But in today's episode, Kyle takes the stance that, in an ideal world, no student ever accepts Christ during one of their youth services. Is it lunacy, or are Kyle and Derek on to something about how we should be approaching evangelism?
K.T. Griffiths is the author of “Shhh… Mental Illness: The Silent Disease”. In today's episode, we are discussing a topic that many quickly write off or ignore all together. We try to keep mental illness quiet, because it's sensitive and hard for many people to understand. Everybody seems have an opinion, even if they've never had to experience it directly. Friends reject you. while others will embrace you for the long-haul. You will find out who your friends are when dealing with this personal pain. If you aren't going through this, you probably have a friend or family member who is. According to Romans 8:18, the sufferings that we go through now are nothing compared to the glory that we will receive. When you go through the pain of a child who is hurting in any way, you can breathe and fight for that child even if it takes the rest of your life. Thank you youth workers, parents, grandparents, and volunteers. Thank you for fighting the fight for these and those who cannot fight for themselves. You are true heroes!

Griffiths offers her first book, a memoir, to all those who faced the realities of life and parenting. As a mother of 6 children, she has been tried and tested in so many ways that this book became a necessity. People know her for her wisdom, honesty, and authentic empathy for the plight of others.
