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.

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?

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.

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.

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