Episode 31 of the Who are these Guys? podcast is online and ready to download! It’s a podcast intended for youth pastors and youth workers originally launched by Tony Steward of Creative Solutions and Josh Griffin, the current high school pastor at Saddleback Church. Anyway, when Josh moved up to lead pastor on the high school front at Rick Warren’s little church, his schedule forced him to drop one of the two podcasts he was on (the other being the Simply Youth Ministry podcast), leaving a gaping whole that Tony has filled with crew of guys from around the country … including me! : ) We use Skype to create a conference call that can be recorded into a show. The description for episode 31 is:
This week on the Who Are These Guys Podcast we have hosts Tom Roepke, Scott Mullens, Lee Nicholson, and Mr. Meltdown Matthew McNutt. This week we talk about how to deal with a competitive spirit, and how it usually comes from an inaccurate measurement for gauging the success of your ministry to yourself, your pastor and you congregation. We also talk about mobile blogging, productivity and other resources.
Yes, I’m “Mr. Meltdown.” I was having some trouble using Skype for the first time and finally connected a couple minutes after they started recording … which crashed the whole thing! Even so, they still let me into the party and I had a great time joining the discussion. It’s a fun thing to bounce around ideas and lessons learned with other guys that share that same love of youth ministry.
