The Local Youth Worker

Subscribe to Podcast


Reformed Youth Ministries is excited to announce the launch of a new podcast entitled The Local Youth Worker. This will be a daily podcast (Monday-Friday) that centers on five questions.

Each individual episode will focus on one question and have a runtime of approximately 10 minutes. Sometimes the episode will be shorter or longer, but we want to keep it around 10 minutes to offer you something that fits into your busy schedules.

Practical to Professional

We plan for our questions to range from “the practical to the professional,” and here’s what we mean. For the most part, we will have five basic practical questions we ask youth workers. Those questions are as follows:

  • (Monday) What’s the best thing you’ve done in student ministry?
  • (Tuesday) What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made in student ministry?
  • (Wednesday) What’s a truth you cling to in order to keep perspective in ministry?
  • (Thursday) What’s something you do to foster relationships with parents?
  • (Friday) What books, besides the Bible, have made the greatest impact on you?

It is our hope that hearing these questions answered by youth workers in other contexts will be beneficial to you. For the “professional” questions, we plan to interview seminary professors, authors, counselors, and others with more topical questions. Those episodes will still center around five questions, but the questions will vary from our Basic Five.

Here’s a preview:  we have an episode featuring Jaquelle Crowe who is the author of This Changes Everything and one with Tim Challies, an author and blogger. It is our plan to have many more like this.
