Episode 2: Kids These Days
In this episode Lief and Jimmy ask the question, “What’s up with kids these days?” Students are more stressed, anxious, and lonely than ever, and that means the way we do youth ministry might have to adapt. As we consider how we might better understand and respond to this new generation, we dive into two recently published books, iGen by Jean Twenge https://www.amazon.com/iGen-Super-Connected-Rebellious-Happy-Adulthood/dp/1501151983 , and Youth Ministry 2027 by Brock Morgan https://theyouthcartel.com/product/youth-ministry-2027/ , and interview a number of different youth pastors from around the country about ways they think we can shape our ministries to better reach and love students. 0:45-16:06 – Introduction and Preview of the Youth Leader Conference 16:35-22:50 – Coffee Break: Your stories of how God is working in the ministries. 23:12-33:05 – Training Intro and Summary of iGen 33:30-56:50 – Transition to YM 2027 and Interviews with Youth Pastors 57:13-60:27 – Benediction Links and other information: Head to http://www.blackhawkchurch.org/ylpodcast for more Follow the podcast on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/youthleaderpodcast/ Share a story with us by calling our StoryLine: 608-571-7314 Save that number in your phone so you’re always ready to share!
