One of the assignments for the youth ministry class that I’m teaching at the seminary was to survey young people about their attitudes toward church. The three youth ministry majors did an awesome job (so did everyone else in the class). They even took pictures. So we put them up in a gallery to show you. We hope you enjoy them. Also included are some pictures of an outreach event that one of the guys went to downtown. They had breakdancers, music, and all kinds of things there. Check it out!
This afternoon we had our friends Carlos and Sonia over with their new baby. It was great to spend some time with them here at the house. We talked about a lot of great things and had some great food. It just doesn’t get any better than this! As always…you can click the picture to see a bigger one.
The second week of Youth Ministry 110 is almost over. This week I started using Powerpoint in class. It seems to help keep us on track, and it also makes it easier for the students to understand (I think). Tomorrow, we are talking about the goal of youth ministry and how it is a Biblical goal. We need our goal to be based on the Bible because it never changes and it can cross cultural barriers. If you have powerpoint or powerpoint viewer(it’s a free download), you can see the presentation for the class. Just click the picture or here.
Our friend Jamie is visiting us from Seattle. He used to be with YMI. We went to pick him up at the airport last night at 6:30, but it turned out that he missed the flight in L.A. So we had to wait until about 11 pm for him to arrive. Luckily we got to spend most of that time with our other good friends Carlos and Sonia and their new baby girl. They had come to the airport to see Jamie, too. We at some pizza and talked about life, so it wasn’t that bad. We’re glad Jamie is here, and we are looking forward to the next week with him.
