Sneak peak: Sometimes It All Blows Up in Your Face

Shhh… this is a sneak peak of one of the videos from Youth Specialties upcoming National Youth Workers Conventions. I’ve watched it a few times already because, well, it managed to collect the range of feelings and even hit some common issues a great many youth workers face all year long… in under 2.5 minutes.

Take a look:

I look forward to youth ministry conventions all year long. I’ve had the privilege to attend both the YS and SYM/Group gatherings, which are both great quality, distinct events that I hope all youth workers have the opportunity to experience. In the coming days, I’ll share some of the reasons why I think conventions are important to a youth workers’ annual schedule.

    Hah, by issues you mean acting totally out-of-control and disrespecting church property? This got a laugh out of me: “I’ve done some of my best work in the sactuary?” Reminds me of a certain youth minister who shall remain nameless (he’s been out of the state for years) eating a sandwich on the altar at a lock-in. At the Cathedral. While someone else tried to explain to him why that was really not cool (or so I heard).

    Two words: awe & some.

    That is a fantastic video. I love it.

    Are you still planning on sharing why you think conventions are an important part of a youth worker’s schedule? You said in the coming days…which I guess just means any time in the future.

I want to hear your thoughts!
