Ministry and Mission can be the sweetest work on earth, and the most painful. Two college friends reunite 10 years later to discuss real world ministry. A church planter and youth minister sit down to wrestle with tough questions like "why stay in Church after it has hurt you?" and "why do youth ministry?" At the same time they are honest, authentic, and don't take themselves too seriously. Learn more at http://www.teargasandgumdrops.com.
