In episode 22 of The Student Ministry Podcast, Steve interviews Dann Voelz, a long-time volunteer in student ministry. Not only has Dann volunteered many years within Steve's ministry, but he has also served in other ministries over the last several years. Currently, he is serving with high school students at Taylorville Christian Church in Taylorville, IL. For many of you who also volunteer, you will relate to Dann's story. For those in paid ministry, you probably have a few people like Dann in your ministry, who serve in addition to their "day job."

In episode 20 of The Student Ministry Podcast, Steve changes it up and interviews himself. Well, okay, he didn't actually talk to himself, but he didn't have a guest for this episode. Instead, he thought it was time for me to share his own student ministry experiences, especially since God just moved him from a 10-year ministry in New England to Colorado.  

According to Steve, "He has taught me a lot through the years, and I hope I can pass on a bit of that to you today in this episode of the podcast. For you who don't want to hear me ramble on, don't worry. I'm not going to make this a regular thing. I just thought it was time for me to share my story."
