Welcome to this week’s episode of our podcast where Brent sits down with two High School students from his youth group Ella and Taylor. In this conversation, they sit down to talk about the importance of being a leader in their school as well as how the church can help support them as they both grow in their leadership skills and actively lead others to Christ through their words and example both at and away from the church.

Whether you’re a new youth pastor stepping into a leadership role, or an experienced ministry leader this is a great episode to listen to as we talk about high schoolers and what’s expected of them, what the world tells them and how they need the church to support them as they work to bring Jesus into their community, school and home.

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.
