Youth Pastor Friends

We had a great time having dinner with two youth pastor friends last evening. The Bartons--Josh and Liz--are at Desert View Baptist, and the Delvikens--Ryan and Priscilla--are at Sun Valley Community. Great time of fellowship with other youth people! Except I got schooled in Nintendo Wii by Ryan. We ate some great homemade pizza from Josh and Liz and had some good conversations spanning topics from China's awkward Olympic high-fives to recruiting volunteers for ministry. Good times had by all.

I highly recommend connecting with some fellow youth workers outside of your immediate church context. Their friendships and perspectives are a huge blessing in a ministry role that can feel isolating at times (when all your friends are under the age of 16, you've got a problem!). I'm looking forward to the next time we can connect with these couples.
