Youth Ministry Team Podcast

Feb 4, 2019

When your students are hurting and experiencing sadness, anxiety, fear, or loneliness they might struggle with how best to manage their pain and it can be intimidating and overwhelming when you discover someone has chosen self-injury for their pain management. How should you respond? Who else needs to know? Why would someone who is already hurting on the inside start hurting themselves on the outside?

Welcome to the Youth Ministry Team Podcast. Youth Ministries rise and fall on the team of volunteers, so this podcast is for the WHOLE team. Join the conversation as we tackle the practical questions you’re asking so you can be encouraged and equipped as you head into your role in your youth ministry this week.
