One of our teens created a character at our winter retreat that is simply hilarious. I asked him if he would be interested in having that character answer student questions in a talk-show format to be hosted on YouTube, and he was more than happy to oblige.
We set up an e-mail account for teens to send questions to, and gave him a 4 episode trial. We just filmed the first episode this week (it will air at Friday Night Flood and be posted online April 30), and though the questions are… thin… this week, I am hopeful that there will be better (or deeper) soon.
This is one more opportunity to give our teens ownership over their ministry, lets them exercise their creativity, and gives them a sense of purpose. I’ll share the video here when it goes live, but until then, enjoy one of the teasers.
