We created this bumper video for our “like” Jesus weekend at SSM (Saddleback Student Ministries). In the message we asked the question: “If Jesus tried to send you a friend request on FACEBOOK would you accept it right away or would you have to investigate who He was a bit?

In today’s vlog I chat with Nikkie, who is in charge of “connect” on our student ministries team. Her job is to assimilate new students to our ministry and get them connected with our volunteer leaders. Here are some of her thoughts on some simple ways to get new students connected to your youth ministry.

Here is a Facebook message I received from a student that we recently asked to join our student leadership team...Sometimes all it takes to unlock a student's potential is an ask!

New Student Leader:
I just wanted to let you know that I'm super excited about being involved as a student leader and I can't wait to see what God has in store for Saddleback Orange's youth ministry! For the past few months I feel like God has been telling me that I need to step up and get involved in the church, so this is really awesome. I can't wait to get to know everyone better next Sunday!

Some times when you try something new….well…let’s just say it’s all uphill from here! :D This is our 1st ever video podcast. In this episode I get to chat with one of my friends, Jay Kranda, on the importance of utilizing social media in our youth ministries. Only problem? For the 1st half of the video only half of my head is on the screen. Oh well. Enjoy! 

…Jay is cooler looking then me anyway…
