On episode 38 of The Student Ministry Podcast, Steve interviews Dan Navarra. Not only does Dan lead the High School Ministry at Monte Vista Chapel in Turlock, CA, but he is also the co-founder of the Youth Pastor Compensation Survey. In fact, he has recently started a new website called The YP Comp Pros, which is an amazing resource for youth pastors regarding compensation, taxes, housing allowance, and other pieces of the financial side of ministry. If you have any questions surrounding what you should be compensated, how often you should ask for a raise, or anything like that, get ready to take some notes during this episode.

On episode 36 of The Student Ministry Podcast, Steve interviews his own youth minister, Tim Uhls, who is now serving as the children's minister at First Christian Church in West Frankfort, IL. Tim has served in ministry at the same church for 30 years. For many years, Tim provided oversight to both children’s and youth ministry, but in the last couple years, he has shifted his attention more to children but still has several areas of youth ministry he oversees, too. Tim has a wealth of wisdom, and we were only able to skim the surface in this podcast, so make sure you contact Tim using the info below.
