Thank you to all my faithful readers who have been patiently waiting for me to return from paternity leave. No better way to start than a self-confession: I use my smart phone quite a bit. It is how I call my wife & family, keep up with friends & even stay connected with my brother.. read more →

I love working in Youth Ministry. Some of my favorite moments have come at Youth Councils either at the altar, during hang out time or night time devotions. If you are from KT, you have just gone through this and for everyone else…it is coming very quickly. This is a time where we have tremendous opportunity to.. read more →

If you have ever held a job and been paid by someone then you more than likely have had to do something that you did not like.  This is a simple fact of adult life.  This is not a job-specific issue; everyone deals with it from time to time.  Whether it be a task you.. read more →

Thank you…Other than ‘I love you’ it is probably the most underutilized yet necessary phrase in the English language. It is this very phrase that I make a point to share with youth workers every time I get a chance to speak publicly to them. I do this because I get it. I do this.. read more →

Evidently if you read last week’s post past the headline then you recognize that I don’t truly believe there should be less Christians in the world. I am always quick to let people know that at times, though my message seem critical, it comes from a point of trying to push myself and others to.. read more →

Daynes Crouch As we near closer to the Re Effect Conference I am expectant to see what God will do. What will He reveal?  What does God have planned for those who will come seeking spiritual renewal and insight on what it means to live and serve missionally? I am excited to see how God.. read more →

I love I’ll Fight Day.  I can’t stress that enough.   It’s just such a cool concept.  You get together with friends, or with your youth leaders and Corps Officers, and you go out and serve your community.  And most everyone does it the same day.  So you can feel connected to people across the country, and.. read more →

As you all know, the theme for youth councils this year is “Live Right!” Pretty awesome cuz it’s based on the new transMission update on a very old song.  “I want to live right that God may use me.”  That in and of itself is a hefty declaration.  It should mean something!     We don’t want.. read more →

Daynes Crouch People are always asking me what new mission trips we have coming up and how they can get involved or sign up to go. Well, the answer is everyday there is mission opportunity and you don’t have to look far to do it. In fact, all it takes is one act of kindness.. read more →
