In this six-minute excerpt (from our full 26-minute interview on U Evangelize, we talk about how to live authentically both online and offline. In particular, I talk about how I leverage my Canucks platform to witness to Christ.
The staff of the Archdiocese of Vancouver at the John Paul II Pastoral Centre got together to celebrate the pilgrims traveling to Krakow for World Youth Day.
Thanks to our friends at Salt + Light for the challenge. In turn, we challenge all Canadian pilgrims (and especially diocesan offices) to put together their own #WYDChallenge video!
More importantly, we pray for all pilgrims traveling to Poland for World Youth Day.

In my talk, I spoke about our need to witness to not only the youth we minister to and with, but also to the youth workers that we serve with.
I’m blessed and excited to be presenting at today’s Rebuild Online Youth Ministry Conference. You can join hundreds of youth ministry leaders from across the globe on Tuesday, May 10 at 10am PST and/or 5pm PST (same content in both) for this FREE online conference.
Rebuild brings together a great mix of youth ministry voices from around the world for a two-hour virtual conference experience like no other.
I’ll be presenting on how we can be better witnesses to both the teens we minister to and with AND to our fellow youth ministers.
Hope you can join us! Register here.
My much-anticipated catch-up session with a youth minister got off to an auspicious start this evening. Upon entering my favorite Japanese restaurant, I told the owner that I would need a table for two. As one of the waiters led me to a table, a woman who I didn’t know entered the restaurant immediately after me. Somehow, the waiter thought that the woman was with me (my wife wouldn’t have been too happy) and somehow the woman remarkably didn’t see me sit in the booth first. Once she sat down she finally looked at me across the table. Slightly embarrassed, she gasped “Oh sorry…I thought that he was seating ME.” She quickly made her way to another table as I tried to stifle my laughter.
An honest mistake to be sure. And in retrospect I don’t blame her for wanting to sit with me. Kidding. Sort of. But not really.
But her innocent presumption got me thinking of the many times we make presumptions in youth ministry. And as in this case, they often turn out wrong.
