New Resource: The "MUSIC DISCUSSIONS" page has just been launched on our web site

Music is a powerful medium.

Kids listen to it daily. They know the words, they are familiar with the videos... why not use this medium to start Biblical discussions?

That's exactly what we've done. You've seen a few of these music discussions featured in this EZINE lately. Check out those and MORE on our new MUSIC DISCUSSIONS page!

ALL of these discussions feature:
  • The MAIN POINT that we are trying to get across
  • The LYRICS of the song that we're using to jump start the discussion
  • An INTRODUCTION STATEMENT and TRANSITION STATEMENT to kick off the discussion
  • Small group QUESTIONS
  • A relevant SCRIPTURE with QUESTIONS about the passage
  • A WRAP UP

A Sneak Peak at Episode #3: In episode #3 Jonathan records remotely in Colorado with Dare 2 Share author/speaker Greg Stier and Dare 2 Share's resource director Lane Palmer. Join these three as they take a look at the rapid growth of YouTube in the "Youth Culture Window" section. Then Greg tackles the "Seven Sins" of evangelism, sharing some experienced insight about the areas we often mess up in sharing our faith. They go on to talk about the brand new MUSIC DISCUSSIONS page on The Source's web site and some of the criticism that music discussions have stirred up recently- Greg speaks frankly about the use of "modern poets" and backs it up Biblically. They close the episode by answering youth ministry questions in the "Help Me" section.

COMING SOON:
  • Podcast #4 will feature author/speaker Fred Lynch, founder of Urbnet. Fred will share the SEVEN SINS THAT WHITE PEOPLE COMMIT REACHING KIDS OF COLOR

  • Podcast #5 will feature author and youth ministry game guru Les Christie. Les will be sharing his own SEVEN SINS OF GAME LEADING

  • Also be looking for a SPECIAL PODCAST where we will skip our normal format to bring you a message Jonathan preached to the whole congregation at WARD PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH- a message titled "God's Grace is for Everyone... isn't it?

This fantastic resource is recommended by Kurt Johnston, Wayne Rice, Jim Burns, Scott Rubin, Les Christie and more.
    Dan Kimball says this about Jonathan's new book:

    "This book seriously is one which I believe could help shape and inspire the future of youth ministry evangelism. Jonathan is not afraid to ask the hard uncomfortable questions and doesn't ignore the elephants we normally do about youth evangelism. But, despite the uncomfortable reality he raises, he gives such practical advice and, most of all, hope for the gospel being communicated to youth."

    -Dan Kimball, author of The Emerging Church and They Like Jesus, but not the Church
