Andy Brazelton has been the leader of youth ministry at Group and Simply Youth Ministry for the last several years (Group, SYM and Group Mission Trips are part of a family of ministries that help youth workers with what matters most).Â I have had a great time working with Andy figuring out the best way to serve youth leaders.Â It’s been one the best times of ministry in my entire life.Â Today is Andy’s last day on the job.
I’m going to miss sitting and dreaming with him about the future of youth ministry and how to best serve youth workers.
I’m going to miss coffee on Monday mornings (I’m not going to miss him telling everyone I never buy him coffee, not true btw).
I’m going to miss coming up with crazy, stupid promo ideas to get more stuff and events in youth workers hands.
I’m going to miss struggling together to build great organizations that do real ministry, pay their employees, and have enough money left over to keep creating awesome new stuff youth workers use to help students encounter Jesus.
I’m going to miss praying with him for you folks (youth leaders) – the reason we do all this.
I’m going to miss my friend.
God bless you ab.
