We had an excellent gathering last week with 15 youth workers from around the diocese. We discussed how relational ministry (building relationships) brings the focus on each individual student and their needs, not just the information we’re trying to teach. We showed this quick clip to catch a glimpse of what discipleship can/should look like.
We also covered some excellent free resources you could use in your ministry. Here are just a few:
