    Welcome everyone to YMI Online All-Access! This is the place to learn, grow as a leader, and be encouraged. Let’s start off by sharing, what do you love about youth ministry?

    1. Steve Schneeberger

      Youth and the randomly honest things they say about life!

      I really love the energy! I am just a big kid myself and growing up I absolutely loved going to youth group. So to be able to do this as my job is a dream come true!!!

      My favorite activity is definitely Summer Camp! We run our own camps so it’s a huge undertaking but each time I walk away simultaneously exhausted but somehow filled with energy!

    Hi! I’m the executive director of YMI. I’m excited you are here. There’s a lot to learn. So, I’m hoping this discussion board will allow you to learn from one another. So, use this thread to share where you are from and, possibly, the biggest challenge you have overcome in ministry. Mine was moving half way across the country and learning how to live and do ministry in a new culture. Now, it is your turn.

      Thanks Steve, I am excited to be here! I am a youth pastor at a church here in Fort Worth! I am passionate about what I’m doing but my biggest current challenge is having so little experience! We do a lot of events and actually run our own Summer camps and Fall retreats at a ranch our church owns in East Texas so on the job training is in no short supply. I am so excited to have y’all’s institute as a resource and I have already had a shift in perspective in a few areas after just going through the first two modules of the 5 Elements Of Youth Ministry!

    Hi! I’m glad you are here and grateful you are investing in yourself! Ministry can get so full of lots of activities and responsibilities that it is challenging to be intentional about investing in your own leadership development. Way to go! You rock! We believe in you and the work you are doing to point students to Jesus.

      Thanks so much Kristen! I am very excited to be apart of y’all’s program and have taken away so much from module 1 and 2 of the 5 elements of youth ministry already!
