Global Youth Ministry Report
Doing youth ministry outside the USA or training youth workers globally? A new free service, "The Global Youth Ministry Report" sends out an e-mail to find out what's working globally in such areas as "Training Student Leadership," "Reaching Lost Youth," or "Developing Indigenous Worship for Youth." Then, a writer compiles this global wisdom and e-mails back a free report. In this way, youth workers glean ideas from practitioners in various cultures that may well work in their own setting. Finally, each report will be archived at http://www.reach-out.org in the "ARTICLES" section (Whew! What a great site!) so that further input from readers can add to this global I.Q. of youth ministry. Interested in this free wisdom exchange? E-mail Steve, in cooperation with Reach Out Youth Solutions, at smillero@mindspring.com .

Ryan Nielsen, youth pastor and creator of the Web site, also includes copies of papers written for an M.A. in Youth and Family Ministry as well as a Youth Ministries Resource Exchange where youth leaders can share materials--lessons in text and PowerPoint, plays, PowerPoint backgrounds and worship resources. Everything on the Web site is free, with the exception of a one-year youth devo that can be ordered online for junior-high and senior-high youth.

I AM NEXT

Check carefully both the classy design and the wise strategy for sharing the truth without being pushy or churchy. Note the way there are many useful pages relating to young people's interests and needs. Deliberately, not all have a spiritual component. See how the main page does not 'look' Christian, yet hints at spirituality issues dealt with on the site. If you think you may have teen visitors to your site - add a link. If you have a church site and need a ready-made evangelistic teen section, this is it. Just link to it in a narrow top frame:
