Ministering in a Post-Christian World

Podcast IconIn ministry I’ve always had the point of reaching people at where they are. You can’t help come to know Jesus without understanding who they are and where they come from.

But what if times have changed. What if the way we are ministering to people today needs to change because people have changed? I know people are coming to know the Lord today, but there are plenty who are not and have no interest.

That is why Tom brings Ben Kerns back to the podcast. He is making a change in his writing by switching from Average Youth Ministry to BenjaminKerns.Online. Now, don’t worry Average Youth Ministry is not ending, it will just be changed (we discuss it in the podcast). However, Ben is going to be writing more   In this episode, Ben and Tom talk about:

  • What Ben has been up to lately
  • What is happening with Average Youth Ministry blog
  • What will the focus of BenjaminKerns.Online be

  • Where to find Pen to the Palace.
