It’s Memorial Day. The offices are closed, but we’re still here recording Episode 18. Since it is a holiday weekend, senior pastors expect lower attendance, which means youth pastors everywhere are asked to preach. We talked about preaching schedules and how often youth and associate pastors get the nod.
We were joined today by Alexis Freedman. Alexis is a former student of Andrew’s and is on full time staff with Young Life in Orlando. We asked Alexis about the differences between traditional youth ministry and Young Life, and she shared the limitation that YL has. She stressed that the ultimate goal of Young Life was to get students following Jesus and plugged into local churches.
You can keep up with Alexis and her ministry at @lex.freedman.
We talked about the movie that Tim is going to be shooting over the weekend. His brother is a director, and occasionally finds rolls for him. Here is Tim’s hilarious imdb page. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3125544/
With graduations right around the corner, we know that you have several themed messages coming up. But As For Me is a complete night of programming targeted at graduation. It comes with a sermon, a small group, a game and graphics. Basically, it is everything you need to be able to have an awesome night of youth group with your seniors before they graduate. https://www.downloadyouthministry.com/shop/but-as-for-me-youth-ministry-graduation-tool
