Thank you so much for everyone who listened to the first two episodes. Your kind words and support means so much to me. Some how you made this little podcast be in the top 100 podcasts for Religion and Spirituality for a couple days. That is crazy! Please subscribe if you haven't done so already and share this podcast with anyone you know who works in student ministry. Also check out my interview with the folks of After 9. They asked me some really good questions and it was fun to hang with them. In this episode we talk about me forgetting to add a video to Pro Presenter and how to make topics than can be dry and boring into interesting messages for students.
