  • 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 […]

  • What am I working on?

    Here’s a quick rundown of the things I’m up to over at YS. #1 I post regularly at the new YS blog.  Here are 3 posts you should check out. Big vision for Cabot. Youth Workers Who Twitter. Carrie Clausen and Her Youth Group. I’m loving the blog. It’s really a fun way to connect […]

  • 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 […]

  • Travel Day

    It’s after breakfast in Romeo and I’m wide awake here in San Diego. (4:00 am) The last 24 hours have been a blur as I commuted about 3000 miles to work yesterday. (Going home Friday) Besides the travel I did get some stuff done yesterday and I’m looking forward to getting more settled today. The […]

  • The Road Trip from Hell Winner

    My students know that I love a road trip. There is nothing quite like climbing into a church van and driving to a destination. So a few weeks back YMX decided to have a contest to find out “Who has the worst road trip story?” It turned out that my NYWC buddy Chris Wyatt of […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • You Matter

    Yesterday we kicked off a series of articles at YMX. Let me tell you why I’m excited about this series. It is practical, between the eyes, encouragement to youth workers. One of the main goals of YMX is to be an encouragement to the Youth Ministry community. So I have been asking our forum moderators […]

  • YMX: Something on the side

    Over the last few weeks I’ve had several people ask me about Youth Ministry Exchange. I don’t mean people from the community, I mean people from Romeo. So here is the scoop. Back in November-December 2005, I created a website with some friends of mine. It’s an online community for people like me… people who […]
