    Blog Scavenger Hunt Winner!

    Congrats to Brandi M. for winning this month's Youth Ministry Blog Scavenger Hunt contest. She will be getting a copy of Marking Milestones And Making Memories For Youth. Thanks to all who entered and don't miss next month's scavenger hunt. For the record, here are the answer to this month's questions:

    1) Chad Swanzy recently detailed some of his youth ministry's plans for the summer. In it he mentions a creative summer program idea: "The premise with this event is that 48 hours before a scheduled T-Minus a map, items to bring, and challenge to meet will be posted on the site and facebook. Students will have less than 48 hours to be ready, prepared, and present at the event." What is the name of this special summer program which goes in the blank above?

    2) Dan, author of the Emerging Youth's blog, describes in his personal description that his goal is to rethink the way youth ministry has been done and attempt to bring not just the message of Jesus but Jesus himself to the next generation of youth. What goes in that blank?

    3) Each Monday Iowa youth minister Jake Bouma writes a not-to-be-missed post about interesting links he's found, what he's reading, what music he's listening to, updates on his ministry, and other cool stuff. What does he title these Monday posts? The Monday Brief.

    4) At Marv Nelson's See Through blog, he recently has been writing about one particular individual's view of the Church. Who is it? Jesus.
    (And you can see more of Marv's reflections on youth ministry at his new blog
    Emerging Youth Pastor.)

    5) In one of Matt Cleaver's favorite posts, he argues that in the next 50 years youth minsters will need to become what? A Theologian.
