  5. 1 | AT&T 2 | Columbia International University. Bible & Bible Teaching. I'm actually confused as to what is actually taught in a youth ministry degree. 3 | James 4 | We do small groups at home. We try to do discussion groups during our main gathering, but those are meant more as a entry way to the mid-week home based small groups. 5 | 6 | Make Believe by Kevin Ragsdale and Ben Crawshaw
  6. 1 | What mobile carrier are you on? Sprint (love that unlimited data) 2 | What college did you go to? Did you get a specific Youth Ministry degree or what? ...Well what had happened was...

We actually have been dealing with some hygiene issues with a particular middle school student. Since the student is female I've been blessed enough to have my wife tag-in and assist but we'd love to be that anonymous number that messages prior to services/activities/long van rides and says... "honey, don't leave your house w/out putting on the smell goods please, and be sure to bring some backups." 6 | Last book you read? I'm not through this one yet but "All In" by Mark Batterson.
