FAME MONSTERS: FOLLOWING JESUS IN A FIRST SHALL BE FIRST WORLD

FAME MONSTERS: FOLLOWING JESUS IN A FIRST SHALL BE FIRST WORLD

“Children aged 9 to 11 now hold “fame” as their No. 1 value. Fame ranked 15th in 1997.” – Journal of Psychology Research on Cyberspace Youth workers, our job is getting tougher.

What’s Your Context?

One of the many great values XP3 Students adds to a student ministry is that it provides practical, biblical and theological content. However, one thing it doesn’t provide is context.

I don’t have to write small group questions. I don’t have to create a bumper video. Those things are done for me and I get to focus on making the... Read More
