One of the details that’s important to Adam and I as we look to the future of Youth Ministry Exchange, LLC is adding value for our members and advertisers alike. This week we’ve added two new sites to this ‘value added’ category: youthministryclassifieds.com and youthministrytips.com.
The first – youthministryclassifieds.com – is a free venue for buying and selling youth ministry resources and related items (electronics, professional books, and even list jobs). There is no specialized after-market venue for youth ministry goods, and we’re able to offer it at no charge. I can see this being a valuable tool for youth workers, but also for churches who want to make the most of resource dollars. No need to keep a curriculum you likely won’t reuse, resell it and find another all in the same location.
The next – youthministrytips.com – actually emerged from a conversation about features for YMXs revamped e-newsletter. One of the newsletter features I’ll compose weekly is, you guessed it, a youth ministry tip! We decided to put these on their own site, and make it possible for people to submit tips and tricks to share.
It’s exciting to be able to see a niche and act on it right away to better serve our youth ministry peers.
