Last month we challenged youth and youthworkers alike to capture the life of Youth Ministry through Instagram and Twitter pictures with the hashtag #youthminphoto. Through this photo challenge, people from around the country added their pictures to the mix on topics like “Wonder,” “Possibility” and “Light,” tweeting them to us with the @ywmovement tag.
What we learned is that there is a great deal of talent and a lot of creative ways of seeing God at work in the world. Whether you participated in the challenge or just use social media yourself, be sure to teach youth how to use the Internet to bring glory to God.
A big thank you to all of the youth leaders and youth who participated!
