055: Racial Reconciliation and Ministry with Mike Haynes (The Student Ministry Podcast)

June 4, 2020

Episode 55 of The Student Ministry Podcast brings back Mike Haynes to talk about racial reconciliation. While racism has been a thing for a long time, recent events have increased our awareness of it. So how do we talk about it with our students? And how do we lead and shepherd them well through this? Mike speaks about his own experiences as an African American but also shares some amazing wisdom on how to guide students through all of this. As a youth worker, you already believe in what God can do through the next generation. Mike guides us in how we can help teenagers tap into their God-given potential to change the world.

052: Non-Traditional Student Ministry with Ansley Higginbotham (The Student Ministry Podcast)

052: Non-Traditional Student Ministry with Ansley Higginbotham (The Student Ministry Podcast)

April 6, 2020

Episode 52 of The Student Ministry Podcast features Ansley Higginbotham, who served in traditional ministry settings for a number of years but is currently serving from home. As a stay-at-home mom, she has been writing blogs, speaking at youth events, writing curriculum, and coaching other youth workers. She also has a huge heart for other women in ministry. For those of you who are not currently serving at a church, we pray this conversation will inspire you to think outside of the box for ministry opportunities. For those who are serving at a church, maybe this will give you some ideas of additional ways to serve. Whatever state you are currently in, we pray that Ansley's story will encourage you in your own ministry, and know that God is not done with you yet.

050: Honoring Tim Uhls (The Student Ministry Podcast)

050: Honoring Tim Uhls (The Student Ministry Podcast)

February 11, 2020

Episode 50 of The Student Ministry Podcast is a little different. In December 2019, the world lost a great youth pastor named Tim Uhls. For those who have been longtime listeners, you may remember Tim from episode 36. Tim was also Steve's youth pastor. In an effort to honor Tim and also cope, Steve reached out to several other people who were in Tim's youth group. This episode is dedicated to the vast impact Tim had on multiple generations over his 30+ years in ministry. There is no way to gather all of the stories, but we hope these few give you a good idea of who Tim was and also encourages you to also have an impact on those God places in your care. We cannot wait until the day when you get to meet Tim in heaven, witness his amazing heart and booming laughter, and we all get to worship God together for eternity!
