2004 ENTRIES AND WINNERS
The Source for Youth Ministry put on a contest for all youth workers, volunteer or paid, to
reward them for driving a hideous heap!
Youth Specialties sponsored this
contest with some great prizes, including Free Registration to Youth Specialties National Youth
Workers Convention - a $350 value
All entries were due on April 15, 2004. The Youth Specialties staff picked a first, second and
third place, and a few honorable mentions. Let's take a look at this year's winners . . .
1st Place Winner
Youth and Families Minister. For $100 we bought this poor car, scrubbed off the slurry that had
been dropped on it from a forest fire, set off 3 bugbombs to kill the black widow infestation. It
is moldy, the ceiling crumbles down on you, it tends to due 25 mph, and the youth group uses it as
a skate ramp.
1st Place Prize:
Free Registration to Youth Specialties National Youth Workers Convention (city of your choice,
Registration only) - $350 value
2nd Place Winner
Full-time Youth Ministry Director, Our Savior Lutheran, Excelsior, MN. Meet Neuman....a 1965 US
Postal Jeep. He's powder blue and orange (rust), has a right-hand steering column, no passenger or
rear seats, and is currently missing a muffler. Fortunately, Neuman's max speed is 58 mph, so no
worries about speeding. Will be perfect when youth ministry forces me to "go postal."
2nd Place Prizes:
Ideas Library CD - $179 (Click Here)
3rd Place Winner
Rick Nier, Youth Pastor, Winona Lake, Indiana. The stripe is falling off again, multiple
rust spots, major windshield crack, interior ceiling falling again (wife stapled it a few
years ago), mysterious stinky smell coming through vents, muffler is only decoration,
transmission slips, ignition only works with much prayer, and it overheats and stalls when
temperature outside is above 50 degrees.
3rd Place Prizes:
Worship Image Gallery - $49.99 (Click Here)
