Do you love free ebooks?
I love getting free ebooks. When I found out that Jon Piper’s books are all free as ebooks, I almost lost it!
One motto at youth ministry media is that everything we write is free for youth pastors. We don’t need the money, but the ads we have on the side are taking care of this site, and that is ok! We will never make millions of this site, and personally we don’t want to. We want to help youth pastors communicate effectively in a digital world.
In light of that we wrote 2 ebooks that together have been downloaded over a 1,000 times! How awesome is that.
Here are both the ebooks:
1. 5 Ways to Communicate Effectively in a Digital World.
Last April I was asked to speak on a session at a Conference for Youth Pastors who were working on their Masters. I had an idea of what I wanted them to learn, but it was difficult to prepare because some Youth Pastors were in rural settings and some where in cities. So, I came up with this ebook: 5 Ways to Communicate Effectively in a Digital World. It has been sitting on my computer for awhile, so I decide to give it away for free. So all you have to do is sign up to may mailing list and you will get a free copy.
– Setting up a digital plan for your Youth Ministry
– Using Facebook in your Youth Ministry
– Using Email Marketing programs for sending out Parent News letters

2. The personal life of the youth pastor.
Here are those categories with a few highlights:
Spiritual Life. Are you too busy to spend time with God? We can come up with every excuse in the book. It’s really simple, you need to spend time daily connecting with God. It’s important to understand the seasons of ministry, and to comprehend when you are busy with the pressures of ministry that you neglect your time with God. You can’t lead your church when you are running on empty. We want the teenagers we work with to spend time with God, and we are the ones who are too busy doing ministry to spend time with God. Our spiritual life matters.
Emotional Life. Are you running on empty? Ministry is a never ending job. The tasks will keep on piling up. Think about the next youth even you need to plan, or the sermon you need to preach, or the people you need to meet up with. Youth pastors need to build into their schedules times of rest.
Physical Life. Why are youth pastors so fat? This was a question a friend asked a few years ago. It caught me off guard. My friend said this blunt statement as a way to protect me, but it was something that stuck with me over the past few years. That isn’t a great question, but a great question is why aren’t we as youth workers careful with the way we care for our own bodies?
