- “3 Reasons Your Youth Leader Needs Seminary Training,” (Cameron Cole, TGC) — This is a wise and needed word for many churches. Youth ministers can be a huge asset to a church family, but they would benefit greatly from proper training and equipping.
- “Fewer Young People Want Gender Equality at Home,” (Belinda Luscombe, TIME) — While studies like this are always ideologically tainted, and the researches even admit they aren’t sure how to understand the data, it remains an interesting trend nonetheless.
