Today we recorded the 179th episode of our youth ministry podcast. For those who don’t know, it’s called The Youth Ministry Garage, and we’ve been doing it for several years.

It’s the highlight of my week to be with some of my best friends and amazing youth workers (Matt McGill, Josh Griffin & Katie Edwards). These friends also have great ministry experience and incredible insight.

On our weekly podcast we answer youth worker’s questions, we give away prizes from our sponsors, and we laugh a lot! We have some very loyal followers (and some who are called “rewind members“…which means they went back to episode 00 and caught up) and we’ve made some good friends.

Today, we had a special guest visit by Mark Matlock–executive director of Youth Specialities (in photo below). He did a great job! He fit right in and made a great contribution.

We are extremely grateful for our primary sponsor: Youth Specialties.

We’ve also have 4 other great sponsors: Azusa Pacific University, YM360, LeaderTreks, and RemedyLive.

In addition to all we do on the podcast, we also take some of the questions and move them to the YMGarage Blog where the community of youth workers weigh-in and answer questions.
