One of my students is the middle school pastor of his church. In January, he told me that his group has doubled in growth since he began taking classes in youth ministry. They have gone from 30 students to 60 in a little more than a year. He has continually told me how much of an impact the classes have made on his ministry.
Not only is the youth group growing, but they are also doing a lot of great things. A group of students recently started a mission church. They do everything to lead the mission in another part of town. This kind of stuff makes it easier to get up in the morning and go to work. If you want to see more, check out the flickr set.
