This past year our student ministry officially dropped the weekly bulletin. For us it was a waste of time and paper. But because you have to promote your ministry we replaced it with a magazine that we publish every 6 months. The DRIVEN Magazine, as we titled it, covers 6 months worth of youth ministry events, sermon series’, and also include articles by our lead youth pastor and myself. Response to the magazine has been incredible. Parents love getting 6 months worth of events in one information piece, and students enjoy some of the interactive pieces we include. The content of the magazine is created primarily by our lead youth pastor and myself, while the layout, graphic design, and printing is done by our graphic artist. It takes a load of work up front but not having to do a weekly bulletin or a monthly newsletter adds up. Click here to view the magazine in PDF form. If you have any questions about the magazine just ask. Also, if you have other creative ideas about youth ministry promotion please share them here to benefit the community.
