Best of 2011 (1) Changing the Game

<< (2) A Place for Us <<

moneyball The was my favorite post of the year as well as the most read and the most spontaneous.

1bob It discussed the baseball movie Moneyball and looked at the the possible skills needed for the future of youth ministry.

The money quote: We can no longer be mere Youth Pastors, but we need to be Pastors of the Church with eyes towards the Church’s mission and responsibilities (not ours) with young people. That’s likely to be challenging for some of us as home-run hitters get baseball cards, no-hit pitchers get baseball cards, even coaches get baseball cards… but, ever see a baseball card for a general manager?
