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:

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.

"Getting Students to Show Up."

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
