This special episode marks one year since The Bible Burrito launched! We’ve got a new theme song and some new ideas on the way. To celebrate, we brought in a good friend of ours to talk about a topic familiar to all 3 of us: youth ministry. Joemel Delossantos serves as the Youth Pastor for First Baptist Church of Spring Valley as well as working part-time for Urban Youth Collaborative of San Diego. Recently, UYC has launched a podcast/show geared specifically to youth pastors, talking about a wide range of topics and delivering plenty of laughs. Joemel is co-host and producer for the UYC Show which you can check out on YouTube!
With Joemel, we discussed the unique ways in which teens engage with Scripture. Teenagers are blunt and brutally honest, and sometimes a bit fickle in their interests, but all of that combines into a very fresh way of doing ministry. As adults, we can quickly forget and belittle the experiences that students in youth ministry go though, so it’s vital the older generations take the time to understand and hear from this integral part of the church.
