24-7 Rise Up CCO (Parody of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic)

“I’m a youth minister, got no money in my pocket!”
 
Here’s the opening to my talk at CCO’s Rise Up Conference last December: it’s a parody of Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic”.
 
Thanks to Sheena June, Rebecca Bilodeau, Joseph San Jose, Matt Vetter, Jason McBurney, and Andrew Maledy for helping me out with this – some of their facial expressions are hilarious…especially Joe’s.

Archdiocese of Vancouver #WYDChallenge (JP II Pastoral Staff)

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.

Witnessing: Seeing Something With Your Own Eyes

Here’s a quick 40-second video that I used to introduce my session on “Witnessing” for today’s rebuildmychurch.org online youth ministry conference by Project YM.

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.
