Congrats, Marc - you just scored $100 in free stuff from Simply Youth Ministry. That is how it is done! By the way, that one hit a little close to home. As always, stay tuned to more contests and giveaways in the near future.


Last week we ran a contest with some great giveaways from WorshipHouse Media. Two winners were picked – the first winner from the random comment is Ryan:

And then there was a prize pack for the funniest comment … they were all fantastic, but this one wins hands down:

Congrats to both winners!

I think I might be first. Was about to order this this week!

And here are the other 2 winners, picked at random from the rest of the entries:

George at 7:52am March 16
We are a small youth group and this would be excellent for our teens.

Jason at 11:31am March 16
Being a part time youth pastor, I love what the group curriculum has to offer. It saves me time of having to write lessons from scratch and spend more time building relationships with the youth

Thanks to everyone who entered! And if you are interested in picking up The Way I’m Wired, or want to check it out – head over to Simply Youth Ministry (and take 10% off if you click through this link and order).
