The links below offer multiple presentations for many of the Philosophy of Ministry classes at YLT. "Why?" you ask...(1) The COVID condensed schedule at YLT 21 only allowed for a POM crash course for Year 1's and also eliminated the traditional Year 2 POM follow up classes. (2) The POM is best understood and applied when you take them time to marinate in it...so here ya go - enjoy wallowing around in it! Each of these teachers know the POM well and have applied it to years of ministry in multiple contexts. They each present it in helpful ways that are a little different. Hopefully this will be as beneficial for you as it has been for me in not only getting a better grasp of what the POM is, but also why it is so important for you in ministry!
