Something New is on Its Way

By Jeremy Steele

Whether you’re just starting out in youth ministry or remember the heyday of DC Talk, getting advice from experienced youth workers is essential in helping you learn the ropes and innovate new solutions to old problems. There are, of course, great sites like this that release coaching, games, and ideas every week to help you along the way, but sometimes you just need to ask a pro who has been there before.

That is why we are trying something new. We are going to offer you the opportunity to hear from one of our incredible contributors on a subject that is important to you. But unlike the typical webinar model, the majority of our time is not going to be spent on presenting content; rather, we are going to spend most of our time answering your questions live.

Our first topic will center on Growing and Equipping Student Leaders. Host Jeremy Steele will interview veteran Chris Lynch, and will get us started with some big ideas and take your questions.

All of this will happen on October 18th at 11AM Central Time. Go ahead and set your calendars. You can join from your phone or through your web browser, and if you will send us a message with your email address, we’ll send you a copy of the “Leadership Lab” resource of your choice (which you can preview here: Here’s all the details. We’ll see you there:
