Your E-update Regarding Youth Ministry Games, Ideas, Links, Lessons, Resources and More!
Edition 9, No. 7- April 1, 2004
At times like this, it feels near impossible to find the right words to say...and so I leave you with this last thought: APRIL FOOLS!!!!
Ok, now that I have your attention, though
- please continue to read the important updates for pastor2youth.com below!!!
Our feature called "In the Trenches" which interviews and highlights Youth Workers from around the world is continuing to moving forward. You can view our sixth interview with J. Ingram, the full-time Pastor to Youth in Shawnee, KS by scrolling down a little on the homepage. In addition, the "In the Trenches" Interview Archive is now active on the right-hand side of our homepage. Here you will be able to access both the current interview as well as all prior interviews. I encourage you to take some time to stop by and read these interviews. If you find something that touches your heart I encourage you to either e-mail the individual and share how you have been touched, or send the e-mail to me and I will pass it on to them for you.
I am very excited to be able to highlight individuals who are "in the trenches" of youth ministry and working every day to impact the lives of students with the Gospel. It is always amazing to see how God is working in our lives and how He is working in different parts of the world - all for the same purpose - so that we may come to know HIM and know His saving Grace and Mercy.
Are you working in youth ministry (full-time,
part-time, volunteer)? Do you want to share what God has been doing in
your ministry? If you would be WILLING to be interviewed and have your
ministry “highlighted” on Pastor2Youth.com, please don’t
be shy (or humble) and send me an e-mail at interviews@Pastor2Youth.com
and let me know. Keep an eye out for new Interviews to be posted on a
regular basis. We hope to highlight a new interview every 10-14 days.
Exciting NEW things happening at Pastor2youth.com
Are you looking for a job in Youth Ministry? Are you a church looking to advertise your new opening? Do you have a friend who is looking for a position? Pastor2youth.com is happy to introduce our NEW Job Bank!!! Like everything else on Pastor2youth.com this service is FREE of charge. If you are a youth worker, you are welcome to come to the site and add your resume for churches to browse. If you are a church looking for someone you can post your job posting on pastor2youth.com. You can also utilize the "search" feature to look for specific jobs, locations, etc.
Like anything that is brand new, this will take a bit of time to develop and fill with information. So, if you know anyone that would fit into either category, please pass this information on to them. Pastor2youth.com now has over 6,600 registered members - so there is a good level of exposure available.
I am excited to continue assisting youth
workers in providing resources that may be helpful and useful and feel
this job bank is just another step. This is not to try and take the place
of any other job banks out there, but to ADD exposure. When you are looking
for a job, or looking to fill a position, you can never get too much exposure.
So, my hope is that the pastor2youth.com job
bank will simple be used to ADD exposure for those seeking to fill
a position or seeking a job themselves and not as a competition. If your
ad or resume is already listed elsewhere, you can feel free to list it
ALSO on pastor2youth.com.
A PLEA TO ALL PASTOR2YOUTH.COM USERS: As I mentioned just above, Pastor2youth.com now has OVER 6,600 registered members. There are a lot of members who regularly stop by to download lessons, Powerpoint Games, Powerpoint and MediaShout Backgrounds, and to pick up games for their youth group programs, just to mention a few. It is exciting to see so many people making use of, downloading, and utilizing the resources from pastor2youth.com. That is what the site is here for.
So, now is where I send out a PLEA to all of you to PLEASE take two-minutes to stop by Pastor2youth.com and submit some resources for inclusion on the site: whether it be a lesson, a Powerpoint File, and game you play, or some other miscellaneous file that you utilize in your ministry. If we could get just HALF of all registered members to submit ONE resource this month, we could add an additional 3,328 resources to this constantly growing site. How awesome would that be? Think about the return-rate. You give 1 and get in return 3,328!!! That is quite the return. All resources are able to be submitted directly on the site by clicking on the "add game" or "add resource" link within the proper section of the site.
There are a few who have continued over the past month to submit resources to the site to help with the continued growth and I would like to express a special thanks to them:
So, please help add to this list of contributors and continue to make Pastor2youth.com a growing and vital resource for youth workers around the world. Thanks.
In case you have any problems submitting your files, or if you would simply prefer not to do it yourself, you can e-mail the files to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will upload them for you making sure all ownership, permissions, and credit is given to YOU!!
I, and thousands of other youth workers around the world, thank you in advance for taking a minute to add a new resource.
