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?

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:
