2014 was an awesome year for us here at Youth Ministry Media. In 2014 we wrote 70 articles, and had over 80,000 page views. Not bad for a little guy like us. It has been a blast writing articles, and sharing tons of resources for youth pastors. It is so rewarding to hear how youth pastors have been impacted by the resources that we recommend, or create here at youth ministry media. We are thankful to be apart of your ministries.
