I regularly read so many great youth ministry blogs that it's hard to keep up with them. Many are included in our list of "More Youth Ministry Help" on the right column of this page. But I know not everyone has time to scan that list or may even see it during a quick visit to our site. So for the next few weeks we want to highlight a few of those great blogs and encourage you to check them out. Today's 5:
Emerging Youth - Dan, a youth pastor in New York, regularly shares his approach to theologically sound ministry to teens in his efforts to "reinvent the way youth ministry has been done and attempt to bring, not just the message of Jesus, but Jesus himself to this next generation of students."
Evolitionist - Neil is an ELCA youth minister serving in a progressive church and his blog is always on the cutting edge of approaching youth ministry in ways that are challenging, inclusive, and authentic.
Marathon Youth Ministry - Christopher hails from Maryland and has really mastered the skill of writing short, to-the-point blog entries that challenge readers to think about important questions and issues in the youth ministry sphere.
Suzy Bower - Suzy writes from Buckinghamshire, England and shares lots of creative ideas for engaging youth through the different senses and learning styles.
Youth Ministry Stuff - Here is the latest blog I've stumbled upon and keep going back to over and over. Tim is a youth minister in Kentucky and his blog regularly features ideas and resources for the creative things he is currently using with his youth.
