WHY WE STARTED
It all started cause we were having fun doing podcasts about youth ministry and said: "we should do this together." So we did!
The Youth Ministry Podcast Network was born over a score of late night phone calls.
Simple as that. We didn't have a lot. Nothing to sell, no more meaningful message, no conference we are hosting or thing we could charge you to put money in our pocket.
AWESOME FOR YOU!!
We have friendship and the passion for excellent youth ministry. Everyone in the network was killing it at their podcasts, and we just decided to team up along the way!
Its simple and free, Youth Ministry Podcasts for youth workers by youth workers... PERIOD

The Fringe Youth Worker Podcast Is an outgrowth of T.J. and Sonny‚ personal friendship and ministry partnership. This show is a weekly podcast that looks at working with marginalized youth from the perspective of a youth pastor (TJ) and an addictions/mental health counselor (Sonny). TJ & Sonny have served in ministry together, been friends for years, and honed their respective styles in their approach to reaching disenfranchised youth.
It all started because my (Justin) wife said I should. I reached out to some great friends for their feedback and they said go for it. My mentor Kurt at the start said he would do an episode here and there, along the way we re-released his book Controlled Chaos: Making sense of junior high ministry, and now we do every episode together.
We partner with our great friends who love junior high at Christ in Youth (CIY)
January 2019. "Sometimes, it takes more faith to stay than to go." There is so much content out there about why young people are leaving the church/faith, but we wanted to have conversations with people all over the country who have chosen to stay. Mike Thomas, an influencer in youth ministry for 10+ years - from a large multi-site church to living room small groups and everything in between. He has an uncanny ability to draw the best out of young people in whatever setting he finds himself in.
Multi Multi launched in June 2018 after looking around the podcast landscape and seeing that there was very little to nothing for those who do youth/student ministries in a multi-site context. We wanted to share wisdom from the experiences God has blessed us with, the share of the grace we received & lessons we through our mistakes, and have insightful conversations with others doing multi-site ministry as we look to grow and become better leaders.
