Sometimes the culture in our church/youth settings can be an uphill climb when it comes to working in new things or trying to break the cycle of “We have always done it this way.” How can we go about leading change within our church communities that will not only put us on the right track to get us there, but also make changes that will last?

Come join the conversation as Brent sits down with Mark DeVries, the founder of Ministry Architects and author of Sustainable Youth Ministry, as they talk about how to lead change within a culture both efficiently and effectively.

We would also love to have you join the conversation if you would like to be on the show! Shoot us a message on social media (@talkstudentmin) or an email ( to get a time set for you to be on the show.
