At youth ministry media, we love two things: lists and gifts.
Honestly, I am addicted to any holiday list out there. Some of my favorite places to see lists and stuff are uncrate and gizmodo.
Here are some posts that are upcoming, and will feature some awesome resources you might have missed this past year. We want to make these lists this year practical, and a way to really encourage you and your youth ministry.
Here are the things that we are going to hit this year.
1. Tech Gear
Here are a few ways you can use this list!
You can use this list as a guide. If you are like me, you probably need some help shopping for leaders. I hope that you are thinking about your leaders this Christmas. I love to get all my leaders something personal. It means that you have taken the time to think and pray for your leaders.
You can forward this list on. Sometimes people don’t know what to get the youth worker who has everything. If someone dropped off a can of chalkboard paint to my office, I would be thrilled. Also, I would love any book on Spurgeon, or any old dead guy.
Last year, I dropped hints that I would love a new Bible, and my lead pastor hit a huge home run with a vintage leather bound ESV. I love preaching out of that Bible. It is a great gift. He showed me how to be generous last year, and how that will affect you and people in your youth ministry.
You can be thankful. We are blessed to have so much stuff. When I look around my youth ministry I have a ton of junk. It is sick, and next week I have the awesome privilege of throwing a ton of it out. How often do you look at your youth room, church, and office and are thankful that you have those things.
I am thankful every time I shut my office door to get focused work done. I am thankful for being able to use the gifts and talents that God has given me. I am thankful that I don’t need any of this stuff to do ministry, but it can help me do ministry more efficiently.
If you have any books, leader gift ideas, tech, any other gift ideas please leave a comment below. Thanks for reading.
