Definitely worth a listen

Ever since I got introduced to reThink and the Orange Blogger family, I have gotten a chance to meet some great people that I never would have met.  One of those people is Terrace Crawford who is a Student Minister in Virginia.  He is also a speaker, an editor at ChurchLeaders and has a book out on social media for Church leaders called “Going Social” (Random Social Media Tip from Terrace: Let your students help lead your Student Ministry’s social media…they are the Pros!).

Not only does Terrace do these things, and is quiet effective at them, he is now branching out into podcasting.  Now, I know I’m doing my own podcast (which I think is pretty good itself) and there are many options to choose from when looking for good ministry podcasts.  But, if listening to podcasts are your thing, then I would strongly recommend you take some time to check out Terrace’s podcast, “This Week in YM“.


Terrace’s podcast will be available every Thursday and will hit relevant, current topics in student ministry.  In each episode he will be interviewing and/or having conversations with other student ministers.  In fact, in Episode 2 Terrace is interviewing student ministry guru Marko.  How cool is that?!?  He wants this podcast to be a place where student ministers can come and learn from each other.

And, to kick off this podcast, he has NOT 1, but 2 awesome giveaways:

  1. Terrace is giving away a brand-new GoPro camera!  Yeah man, I have one and that’s some pretty cool stuff.  Go here for details.
  2. He is also giving away a FREE TICKET to the Orange Conference! Click this link to enter to win this great opportunity.

Now honestly, I can’t promise you that you are going to like it or not (I personally like it).  I can’t tell you if millions of people will download it like Serial (that’s a great podcast no doubt).  But what I can tell you is that Terrace has a lot of experience to offer and he’s giving away FREE STUFF!  So what’s stopping you from at least checking out “This Week in YM”?  Nothing really.  Give it a try today here and share with Terrace Crawford and others this week what you are getting out of it.
