BOB4:Rebuild

4As we wrap up our ninth year of blogging, we are offering a retrospective of the best 20 things that I have most treasured about the blog. Here is #4.

It is not just a blog post, but an entire web site, ReBuild My Church!

A free on-line youth ministry web-conference which will be entering its fourth generation November 7.  It has featured some great speakers – both of the experienced variety as well as those gifted and talented folks that have yet to break through to the workshop circuit or main stage. Furthermore, with the most recent Pope’s selection of name, we looked nearly prophetic when we named the conference.

ReBuild has already branched off into spin-offs of its own…Blueprints, a Google+ hangout chat with a few smarties taking on a specific topic in the field and offering practical resources.

Partners Tony Vasina and Michael Marchand have collaborated in putting this all together and for the older guy in me, each time it is sort of a technological marvel that we can pull this stuff off… and it makes me wonder.. why isn’t there more of this?

D. Scott Miller

D. Scott Miller is the dean of Catholic Youth Ministry bloggers which is a polite way of either saying that he is just plain old or has been blogging for a long time (since 2004.)

Scott recently married the lovely Anne and together they have five adult young people and also grandparent three delightful kids (so, maybe he is just plain old!) Scott presently serves at Saint John the Evangelist in Columbia, MD as the director of youth and young adult ministry.

He has previously served on the parish, regional, diocesan, and national levels as well as having taught within a catholic high school. He is one of the founders of RebuildMyChurch and has returned to posting regularly (keeping regular is important to old guys) at ProjectYM.
