Hey folks, 
It's been just about 3/4 of the year since I have posted here.  I started Resource Youth Ministry because I was looking for a way to build a community of youth pastors.  The circles that I surround myself are of men and women that honestly intimidate me.  

I want to be effective; I want to change lives. I don't care about my ranking youth pastor in comparison to the next youth pastor.  Numbers are easily beginning to un-impress me.  I don't care if you have 1000 students or 10 students; are they trying to change the world around them? Are they trying to  allow Jesus to use them in the most closed mission field in our country?

I am going to try again with this community effort.  I am literally starting a community from the Communities section or Google+.  Intentional to say the least.  
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/107868380553368503776

So, if anyone has ever payed attention to this page, finds it by accident in the future, recognizes the same need in your life, come and find me.  Help me figure this out and in return, I will do the same.

Good word. I'm not in youth ministry, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on a free evangelistic hip-hop project we're doing called the DROP CD. Would it be useful for you? http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-drop-project/x/3169924

Enter to win the new student evangelism training curriculum. Plus, you could win the entire Youth Specialties Jonathan Mckee youth ministry library of resources.

Just the question alone hit hard, I am afraid to dig through the article, I thought through the question for an hour alone...
 
This is a critical question we need to honestly and humbly think through as youth workers. There are huge implications.

Watch this fascinating teaching video by my new boss at Epipheo! I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.
America has a different view of family than Scripture describes. Do you understand your family philosophy?

http://techland.time.com/2012/04/03/arizona-looks-to-outlaw-internet-trolling/

In reading this, anything, even a staunch religious stance (not advocating religiosity) could be interpreted as "trolling". It is a broad sword and it is under the value of interpretation. I can see a student responding to another student with "You need Jesus" or something of that magnitude and being slapped with the illegal "trolling" tag for religious obnoxious-ness. Maybe my mind is creating to many what-ifs? Thoughts?
Being obnoxious on the Internet may soon cease to be a fundamental right in Arizona, where lawmakers approved a measure that effectively makes trolling illegal.

Sometimes I feel youth ministries are doing more to replace parents than they are to partner with them. There's a difference that has considerable effects on our youth groups and teenagers.

I like looking at how others develop roles in youth ministry...

Suffice a need for limitless youth ministry resources.
Introduction
Here is my goal:
I want to equip myself with as many resources on G+ that I can find; thus equipping others.  Any video, any website, any band, cultural dynamic, speaker, teacher, verse that will give anyone more opportunities to become a better equipped to handle youth/student ministry.
