Topics and trends in youth ministry from Holy Week devotional videos to a discussion on dangerous phone apps, leaders will find content that is informative, inspirational or practical - or all three! A feature called “This Week’s Trending Links” connects to relevant articles by youth ministry specialists across the country. For example, the article on phone apps comes from a tech-savvy youth minister from Texas. It generated a lively follow up conversation among dozens of readers. Browsing will lead to other sites that offer their own unique content, making Youth Specialties a launching point to a rich array of additional resources. The primary audience is the congregational youth worker, but parents and others with a love for young people could benefit from its offerings as well.
