Can you believe it is already July?!?  Crazy how fast the summer is going.  Well, here are some of the things you may have missed in the ministry world…

Stat of the week:  Want to reach more people?  Maybe you can try YouTube.  Did you know that YouTube has more than 1 billion users (thanks YouTube for that stat)?  Now might be a good time to start doing some video stuff in your ministry.

I tried something new this week by taking my Meerkat video (which is in portrait mode) and cropping it to put on YouTube.  What do you think?  I know it leaves a lot to be desired, but I experimented and tried something new to communicate my message.  So, I hope this inspires you or challenges you to try something new today as well…and to maybe nudges you to try out one of these blogs I highlighted. 🙂

Are there other stats, quotes or blogs that you found interesting this week? If so, share them below or on social media using #ymsidekick so we can learn and benefit from each other.
