The doctoral journey gets back on track today after a week off the track. The Missional Order Gathering…being in Washington state…finishing up some issues with the Youth Leadership Institute and working toward a new ministry with a media resource company called, Transfer have kept me out of the dissertation pool. Today I’m jumping back in! My goal is to finish up by the end of the calendar year…today’s work is a literature review and a quick overview of the chapter I recently finished about the cultural issues/pressures facing an today’s youth ministry. So, if you are my journey in some way, pray for me OK? If not on my journey, pray anyway! My topic is Adolescent Spiritual Formation and Leadership Development within a Missional Context. Ok, got my intellectual "speedo" on…now it’s time to jump in! Adios!
