Young Youth Leaders

As I write this, I am just months away from my 40th birthday. It’s a bit mind-boggling to think that I’ve been in youth ministry for over 25 years now! I delivered my first sermon when I was 14 and by age 23, I was speaking to tens of thousands of teenagers in arenas and stadiums across North America. (As a twenty-three-year-old, my mind was blown at this opportunity. It was a dream come true!) Since then,  I have spoken before more than 2 million people in 20 different countries. Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I have toward God for allowing me to affect so many lives, meet so many amazing people and have so much fun doing it all!

There is no way that I could have accomplished a modicum of this, if it wasn’t for some amazing — world-class — mentors in my life. Every accomplishment I experienced was because they allowed me to stand on their shoulders. I am eternally indebted to their investment into my life. So as I write this first blog tonight, I do so in the hopes that I might be able to do the same for other “young” or aspiring youth leaders. My hope is that my words and resources, shared in this blog, would play a part in raising up a new “holy-regime” of young influencers who will boldly proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ world-wide. So here’s to turning 40 and ever advancing in my endeavor to be the Devil’s worst nightmare! There’s more content to come and I look forward to hearing from you!
