    Type Cast

    I definitely got a chuckle out of middle school minister Josh's description of the "types" of youth that he comes across in small groups. For example, the "gun jumper":

    Things you can't use as a part of your teaching style around the Gun Jumper: rhetorical questions, stories that build to a point, or any idea that has more than one part. This one wants to ask the final point before you get to it. On the one hand, you want to applaud because of their ability to grasp what you're talking about. But on the other hand, you want to throw your shoe at them for messing with your set-up that you've worked so hard on.
