  • Thank You, YMX

    Yesterday, we we went public with a decision to end Youth Ministry Exchange after about 5 years. For the last couple of years it has been trickling and trickling… and so we figured, “Why not just have a celebration of life and let it pass now instead of letting it go from 200 members per […]

  • Best of 2005

    Note: I’m on vacation this week. My family has a rule for daddy– It’s not a vacation if daddy brings a computer. Each day this week I’m highlighting my favorite post from the adammclane.com archives. These are oldies but goodies. Check Out YMX! Hey, a buddy of mine and I launched a website lately for […]

  • 6 Questions for Those Starting a Business

    The Great Recession of 2009 has created a new breed of entrepreneur– the I-don’t-have-a-job-but-I-was-once-successful-in-business-and I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-my-life-since-I-can’t-find-a-good-paying-job-that-satisfies-me-quite-like-my-old-job-did-entrepreneur. What’s interesting about this group is that they have great ideas, limited capital, and a mixed bag of preparedness for starting a business. Honestly, that’s a perfect combination! The bad part is that since they don’t have jobs, they need […]

  • My new column at YMX

    In December I was looking for some column ideas for a new weekly thing I’m doing for Youth Ministry Exchange. After a ton of discussion, brainstorming, and banging our head against the wall, Patti and I settled on the idea that I would write a weekly column called, Be Strong. So far, I’m pretty happy […]

  • Weekly Column Ideas

    Over at Youth Ministry Exchange I’m going to be starting a weekly column. The question is, what should I write about? I don’t think it should be just general youth ministry stuff. Let’s face the fact that right now I don’t have a lot of up-to-the-moment experience that is going to be useful. For a […]

  • YMX Acquired by YS

    Today, at 4:47 PM EST it was official. My mouth has been shut for weeks since I couldn’t talk to anyone outside of my family about the deal with YS. But it is now done and I couldn’t be happier. YMX partnering with YS is, in my opinion, the perfect place for YMX to fit […]

  • Youth Ministry Ad Network

    Maybe you’ve noticed that there is a small block of ads on the right side of my blog. What is that all about? Patti & I have been thinking of a very focused, very profitable (for both advertisers/bloggers) niche` ad network for youth pastors for a long time. Essentially, our goal with it is to […]

  • 3 Teen Pregnancy Resources

    Every once in a while we get a great string of synergy at Youth Ministry Exchange and we really hit it out of the ballpark with solid resources. Today we released 3 different resources on teen pregnancy. Life After Birth (bible study for new moms) What Juno Didn’t Tell You What Does Juno Teach Us […]

  • What a day!

    I was having a good day. Really, my new toy arrived and the installation has gone very smooth. I had a good day at work and got a lot done. Then I got totally flattered by a post over on the MailChimp blog. (MailChimp is the third party email handler we use for the YMX […]

  • The YMX blog

    For a few weeks now (eternity in my library of ideas) Patti and I have talked about having a YMX blog so that our blogs weren’t quite so clogged up with stuff about the company and/or youth ministry stuff for others. It’s not that we don’t love youth ministry or youth workers coming to our […]
