Loved this quote...

I picked up a copy of Marko's latest book... A Beautiful Mess.  It is a short little e-book that I picked up for free off of Simply Youth Ministries website a couple of days ago. And I loved this quote...

"There really is a magic formula - a math equation - for great youth ministry...

A grace-filled caring adult who's willing to be present to teenagers + a smallish group of teenagers + the power of the Holy Spirit and presence of Christ = a freakin' awesome opportunity to impact the world" (page 24).

That's good stuff there.  It's so easy to get wrapped up in new ideas... programs... events... sermons... planning... outreach... programs... volunteers... programs (did I mention programs)... that we forget that youth ministry is really just an adult who loves Jesus and is growing more like him who likes and is available to teenagers and the power of God wrapped into one fun-loving ball of ministry!
