Youth Worker Appreciation Week

Youth Specialties, an incredible organization based in San Diego, CA committed to encouraging and resourcing youth workers, has declared September 06, 2008 as Youth Worker Appreciation Day.

On that day retail stores around the USA will be offering discounts and freebies to youth workers as a THANK YOU for all that you do!

I thought it would be fitting to declare this week Youth Worker Appreciation Week here on the blog. To celebrate the occasion I will be giving away free resources daily here on the blog to youth workers (paid and non-paid staff) as an additional thank you. There will be random drawings for the resources and all you have to do to enter is send me an email with your name, church or organization you serve with, location, blog url, ministry website and a photo. I'll conduct random drawings this week (daily, I say!) and will give the winners a shoutout right here on the blog.

Tomorrow will be the first official drawing, so get your entry in TODAY! This evening; however, I will be doing a LIVE chat on at 9.30PM, EST and will do a few giveways during the broadcast. So send your entry information in, tune in tonight (via and check the blog daily to see what youth workers we are honoring. It could very well be YOU.

Here is a word from Youth Specialties:

Oh, and spread the love (word).

    all i know is, if God leads me back to the Tidewater region of VA, I am going to buy a house near your church and send my kids to your youth group. You are amazing, my friend.
