The 'Thursday Morning Debrief' Podcast

A few weeks, a good friend of mine, colleague, and fellow youth worker in the trenched, debuted our fresh podcast, "The Thursday Morning Debrief." 

In our 'prelude' episode, Episode 00, we discuss a bit about how this idea came about, along with some simple comments about one another and the intent of the podcast. Our hope is that this podcast can be an offering of encouragement and wisdom for our maturing youth workers in the field. May our Lord bless you in your next season of ministry. 

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:

  • Some introductions
  • Talk about how we met
  • Where are we going in our time together.

This weeks musical selection, Hand in my Pocket, by Alanis Morissette was chosen by Ben simply because she rocks!  (Next week, Ryan will bring his idealism and passion to the forefront as he selects some crazy Millennial music!)

Blessing for the fellow Youth Worker by Ryan:

May you know your redemption and identity in Christ. May you embrace your call to serve and love students and families. And may the Spirit guide you as you continue to grow in your God-given abilities in your vocation! In all things we ask in your name, Jesus Christ, Amen!

Blessings on you, and we look forward to more episodes to come!
