Youth ministry has received the bad rap for being all fun and no work. For those who hang out with teens creating memories, getting too much pizza with middle schoolers, have milkshake chugging contests with high schoolers, and sharing Jesus with teens who need to know the glory and peace that He provides, our focus is not always on organization.
Simply Youth Ministry has created a set of online tools specifically for youth ministry organization and administrative work.
Here are the highlights:
- Contact – Store, organize, and tag contact information for students, volunteers, and parents. Imagine a sweet, flexible, online Rolodex designed with youth workers in mind. Access it anywhere, anytime for free.
- Communication – Talk with your students, volunteers, and parents quickly and easily. No matter if you’re talking to an individual or to 100s of people at the same time, your message will find them right where they are.
- Team – Raise the bar on who you allow to work with students. The Team tool provides a process for collecting a ministry application, background check, and training for anyone working with teenagers.
- Jobs – If you need to find the best youth ministry professional to fit into your church you need to go where they are. Thousands of youth workers visit our sites every day looking for help and inspiration. What better place to find your next youth pastor.
Of course, the whole set does have a monthly cost, but if you want to see how the tools could work, I highly suggest trying out the Contact section with their 30-day free trial and see how this could revolutionize your ministry.
How do you try and keep organized?
