Dave Rahn (Ph.D., Purdue) has been a shaping influence in youth ministry for over 40 years now. His leadership in Youth For Christ, the Association of Youth Ministry Educators, Huntington University, and many many other organizations and schools has helped advance youth ministry to where it is today across the country. What may not be as known is that Dave's first research area was on the topic of motivation and its role in the ministry dynamic. He recently contributed a chapter on “Motivation and Ministry” in the new book I edited called, Teaching the Next Generations: A Comprehensive Guide for Teaching Christian Spiritual Formation.
This is a great episode full of tremendous value. And it's FREE! Thanks to Experience Mission, whose support makes it possible.
Here's our interview with Dave:
Clarify your Purpose
I want to share a proven resource guide that I first used in my own life and have since used with many other leaders. The simple process helps to clarify your purpose, your bucket of what you do in practice, and then the path you need to take as you take your best next steps forward.
