Back to Blogging!

Posted: February 9, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you know that I’ll be blogging again more frequently. I couldn’t keep up the frequency at which I was blogging last year and needed to take a break. But I absolutely love this age group and have been collecting thoughts to write about this year. If there’s a topic you’d like to see discussed, please leave a comment here or e-mail me at david_hausknecht@vanguardchurch.org. I’m always amazed by the vocal comments I receive in person and wish that these comments were included on the actual blog to stimulate more discussion. Whether you’re a middle school pastor, a parent, a teacher, or a student, you have input that we can all benefit from. So don’t hesitate to voice your opinions! I’m looking forward to more interaction with you all.

As one final note, I’d like to share a resource with you that I have found very helpful in my ministry with teenagers: CPYU.org. CPYU stands for the “Center for Parent/Youth Understanding.” It is tailored specifically with parents in mind and does a lot of current media research and reporting. For example, it can be very helpful for those of you who don’t have the time to watch a movie before telling your student if they can watch it or not. I encourage you to check out their website and browse around!

I pray that you will love your middle school student(s) authentically and that your integrity always be greater than your influence. God, give us patience and grace and help us to love our middle schoolers into a REAL relationship with you. Amen!
