Episode 08 – Meet My Mentor

Episode 08 – Meet My Mentor

When it came to introducing you to my friends, it only made sense to start with my wife Janelle Prenkert. It also only made sense to have the second guest by my mentor Terry Bley. Terry is the one who brought me on staff at my church and willingly moved to the side to allow me to grow in leadership.

Episode 07 – Meet My Wife

It’s time for Phase 2 in the My Third Decade Universe. Phase 1 has been MY STORY… solo shows all centering around my journey of 20+ years in Student Ministry at the same church and lessons learned along the way. In Phase 2 you are going to meet MY PEOPLE… these episodes will be interviews with a variety of folks who have played into this journey of longevity. I can’t wait for you to meet them!

It only made sense to start with the most consistent AND important individual in this journey… my wife Janelle Prenkert.

Episode 04 – Five Times I Almost Quit

If you think the past 21 years of Student Ministry at the same church have been filled with only Skittles, rainbows and ponies, be prepared for disappointment. The reality is ministry can get tough, tricky and lonely. We may want to quit or give up. I have.

“With longevity comes the need to reinvent yourself.” (thanks for the quote Jalen Rose) Last episode, we talked about ways I’ve transitioned my role inside my current church and youth ministry.
