****THIS EPISODE MARKS OUR FIRST 6 MONTHS OF PROVIDING WEEKLY PODCASTS!****

Being a youth/student pastor is often a short lived occupation that is often times a transition period for many people (whether they transition to another profession or a senior pastor position), but what would happen if it was treated as your career? What would happen if you devoted 10+ years to ministry at the SAME CHURCH?

Come join the conversation as Brent sits down with Jerry Varner who is a Youth Pastor who has been in the field for the past 26 years. They sit down today to talk about the importance of longevity in Student Ministry.

You can listen to this episode in a variety of formats including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Pocket Casts and Radio Public.
