Youth ministry friends. Hi. We have something to tell you and then we need your help, okay? It will take 15 seconds. Probably. We made up that number. Total guess.

Anyway, here’s the deal. 2017 is going to be a big year. That’s because Stuff You Can Use is going to spend 2017 helping you solve your biggest youth ministry problems. Yep. This year, our priorities are pretty simple.

STEP 1: Find out your biggest ministry struggles, questions, and tensions.

STEP 2: Help you solve them.

So here’s what we’re asking you to do. Comment on this post or email us, and tell us your biggest struggle in youth ministry – the thing that keeps you up at night. What’s the thing that makes you like…

Is it budget? Parents? Sermon prep? Attendance? Whatever it is, we want to hear it. Tell us. Right now. We’ll read every single reply and then spend this entire year trying to help. Because, friends, this year, we’re going to work harder than ever to help you be more awesome. So go ahead – tell us what you need. We want to help.

And if you haven’t already heard the news, there’s a big reason why this year is going to be such a good one. For the first time ever, we’re finally giving Stuff You Can Use our full-time attention. If you want to hear more about our big announcement, check out this update.
