||CleanEpisode 1.10: Fundraising & Budgeting Systems||We youth leaders understand frugality, especially in small churches. But how do you know when you're being frugal, and when you're just underfunding your youth program? Further, how do we get our church to help pay for the youth program? Today's guest, Glen Guyton, has GREAT advice on these topics and more. As someone who spent years in youth ministry, he's got lots of experience. As an added bonus, he's currently the Executive Director for the Mennonite Church USA. So he's got lots of perspective to share! We mentioned a bunch of books: Sustainable Youth Ministry, by Mark DeVries Smaller(er) Church Youth Ministry, by Brad Fiscus and Stephanie Caro Sticky Faith, from the Fuller Youth Institute Growing Young, also from the Fuller Youth Institute||8/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanEpisode 1.8: Systems for Communication||Do you ever feel like you have to communicate in 16 different ways to be heard by everyone? Or do you feel like people often complain they don't know what's going on in the youth program? Communication takes a lot of time for youth workers, but it's very important. Figuring out what communication your youth group needs is an important part of being an effective youth worker. This episode gives some concrete advice on how to do that well. Our interview with Seth Muse helps us think through that strategy in a broader way. And finally, we check in with Patricia Cogles at the end of the episode, who we last heard from in Episode 2. She talks about her need for self-care, and the impact Parkland has had in her youth group.||4/2/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

A helpful voice in the many youth ministry podcasts many of which are coming out of larger church contexts. Thanks!
User-friendly, do-able tips!
This podcast has helped me (a youth group volunteer) see more clearly how I fit into the big picture of our church’s youth group. It gives advice that meets me where I am and helps me take the next step forward!
I dig it. It's clear and helpful.
