Recently something very cool happened to me. I was asked to write a guest post for YouthMin.Org on women in ministry–which I should know ALL about given my estrogen levels. And what do you know? They asked me to become a contributor.
I’m pretty stoked about this. What does this mean for this blog? Well, I won’t post as much youth-y stuff on it. One of the great things about YouthMin.Org is that we are seeking to build a one-blog, one-community place for youth ministry. This is great for a girl like me, who has like 200 people who have been named “top youth ministry blogs” but are filling up my feed with the same old stuff. I’m sick of the self-promotion. Why can’t we promote a community? That’s what this being a part of the Body of Christ is about.
Another thing I love is it’s all about “everyday youth pastors.” I’m no super-star and no matter how I try, I will never be the female Josh Griffin or Doug Fields. I’m a young minister who is learning from others and teaching what I learn. And from what I can tell, these contributors are humble in the same way.
So I encourage you, dear friends, to check out YouthMin.Org for everything youth ministry. As for this blog, I will continue talking about life lessons I am learning. And yes, they will talk about ministry. Ministry is my life. It will just be different (although my last year of blogging has differed than the year before and so on and so forth ;) )
