Intentionality Diversifying Your Youth Ministry

Many student leaders have the admirable desire to see diversity introduced into their ministry. At times, the strategies to achieve this may not be the most beneficial to the cause. Some of the methods we use to “reach out” to a certain area or demographic might actually be stereotypical, offensive and off-putting to our prospective student. Learn diversity with greater sensitivity to enhance your ministry.
Passionate Interchange: How to Have Intense Conversations w/ Abba

Because: our call to people starts on our knees.
