Recommended Youth Ministry Resources to Kickoff the New School Year

 —  August 29, 2011 — 1 Comment

It’s back to school season – and for us that means we pour a ton of effort into our fall kickoff weekend, our first big series and the launch of small groups. Thought I might make some recommendations for some great youth ministry resources that might help you as you head into the start of another year.
