The big news in youth ministry today is that Zondervan
(the giant Christian publishing company) is buying Youth Specialties
. You can read the press release
or watch a great video
of Marko (president of YS) and Tic Long talking about how this new acquisition won't bring many changes to Youth Specialties as we now know it. Youth Specialties has been a great source of strength, training and encouragement for thousands of youth ministers for over 30 years.
