A few things that stood out from the last month:

1. New content was king in the month of December.  9 out of the 10 post were from December.  That is awesome.  You are enjoying the content.

2.  You are enjoying the series.  The youth pastor gift guide was a hit.  I had a blast putting those lists together.


Youth ministry media continues to grow and I am excited about this.  Every month I keep thinking we are going to hit a plateau, and we have an even better month.  This is all because of you.  I want to say thanks for checking out the site.   You can see the goals for this website here.
