You can check out the post here, Youth Ministry Media’s Goals for 2013.  I love being able to work through a plan, and execute it.  Here are the goals for the year, and I am looking for help to accomplish them!

Here is the update for february:

1.  Have 2000 facebook follows.   

  • Currently 1,039. 1,101  It is slowly moving along.  We are waiting expectantly for the new Facebook update!

2. 15,000 hits per month.  

  • In February we it 5,948.  We have seen a Drop. We are already seeing this increase in March to hit closer to 10,000.  I need to spend more time on quality content.  I feel like I have hit a blogging wall.  This gets tiring.

3. 30,000 twitter followers.  

  • Currently at, 22,433.  22,569.  I love twitter, and I feel like we are still building this.  One rule I have followed is that I will follow any youth pastor who is following me.

4. Build my email list to 1500. 

  • Currently at 635.  This list is slowing down.  I need to think of creative ways to connect with this community better.

5. Write 2 more ebooks.  I am going to write one ebook called, “31 days to build a better youth ministry”, and another one on using/developing a texting system with digital download.  I am not sure if I will sell these ebooks, or release them for free!  

  • Next ebook to drop in July, and the other one in September.

6.   Comment 10 times a week on different blogs.  Done!  I need to read more posts.  Know of anyone that I need to read?

7. Use google+ better!  

  • I am going to use this sparingly.  I am not going to build a strategy.  I don’t get any traffic as it is.


This is a ton of work.  I feel like things are going well, and I love being able to have a writing outlet.  Thanks for all your support.  I really do love this community!

Those are my goals this year! What do you think?  What are the goals for your website?
