The April Fool

For a while, I have been considering the wisdom of having a youth ministry related blog as a hobby for a professional youth minister.  I’m not sure it is the best idea anymore.

And that how we started out the biggest day ever on this blog – with a collaborative April Fool’s joke. So, allow us to re-visit 4/1/09

Still very proud of my youngest daughter, Meghan, who served as the anchor amidst all the Catholic YM All-Stars (didn’t know I needed an anchor when we started this project) and served as the entertaining glue for the whole project.

Four years later, after virtually and prankishly throwing in the knitted towel, we are still here and still going at it… for now.

Who is foolish now?

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.
