Episode 06: Get Off the Bench and Become a Contributor

Welcome to the Thursday Morning Debrief with Ben and Ryan.  

This is a podcast where we seek to leverage our friendship to maintain a soft heart towards Jesus and towards our ministry.

In this weeks episode: Get off the bench and be a youth ministry contributor.

This week, we talk about the following topics:

- There are so many resources
- Why we got in the game
- You already know everything you need to know to be a good youth worker, so contribute rather than consume. 
- How will you contribute?

This week's musical selection, "Intergalactic" by The Beastie Boys was chosen by both Ryan and Ben. After months of trying to find some musical agreement, we finally landed.

Blessing for the Youth Worker by Ben:

"May you know that you are already equipped with the knowledge and experience you need to kill it in your ministry context.  So, instead of simply consuming more and more information targeted towards rookies, be the veteran youth worker God and His Church need you to be. Contribute, write, blog, podcast, speak, all for your continued maturing and for the glory of our savior, Jesus!"
