This blog isn't that great.  Seriously.  I love writing it, and I love connecting with others in youth ministry through it, but there ARE some really good YM blogs out there!

One of them is DougFields.com.  Do I even need to tell you who DF is?  If you're here, chances are you know already.  Of course, his blog is full of great stuff, and you should stop hanging around this janky site and head over to his - RIGHT NOW!

There are much better youth ministry websites than this one out there, and this week I'd like to point you to Youth Ministry 360.

YM360 is all about providing Bible Study Resources, Training, Community, and Networking opportunities for the youth worker.  They are a newer site but one that is making a big impact in the YM world (if that's even really a thing).  I love the YM360 blog, and they also regularly offer freebies on their site.

What are you waiting for?  Head over to YM360 and check out what you're missing!

I can't imagine that you ended up at this tiny youth ministry blog and haven't checked out Josh Griffin's (high school pastor at a tiny church called Saddleback in Southern California) monster-blog Morethandodgeball.com, but on the off-chance that you've never checked it out, you should!

Josh blogs more in a week than I do in a year and puts up great content on almost every YM topic imaginable, plus he regularly features guest posts (check out one I did a couple years ago by clicking here!).

Check out MTDB!

There are a lot of great youth ministry sites out there that every youth worker should have saved to her/his bookmarks!  One of those is Jonathan McKee's MASSIVE collection of everything YM related - games, messages, resources of every type - called TheSource4YM.

I can't tell you how many times I've been hard-pressed at the last minute for a game, message-idea or illustration, etc., and found my way to the source and a solution!  Every youth worker should know about The Source!  I can honestly say I haven't even scratched the surface of the content the site has to offer.

Check out JM's site by clicking right here, and be sure to drop him some feedback and let him know what you think!
