Met Josh McDowell last night – actually hung out on his tour bus for a few minutes with a good friend on his tour that happened to be in the area. We had a good time talking youth ministry quick and about the joys and challenges of ministering to this generation. He’s a great guy – for someone so incredibly smart he is super personable, and willing to let us crash his bus for a few minutes for the introduction.
Spent the rest of the night hanging out with my friend who is travelling with the team – a former youth pastor and PDYM mentor who is assisting Josh on the road. Sounds like a great opportunity to ministry everyday to students and to parents.
Also: as I checked out Josh’s website, there’s some great free downloads at the very bottom you should grab immediately, too.
