A New Adventure…Again

August 17, 2011

I started a new adventure this week.  After 4 great years at Simply Youth Ministry, I’ve returned to Youth Specialties.  I’m super excited about the opportunity.  When I was serving in a church as a paid youth worker, I used their resources all the time and recieved encouragement and training from their events, and in 1998 I had the opportunity to join the YS team running the store at events and the IT guy for the office.  Now I return as the Director of Digital Marketing which means I’ll be planning and building websites, plus dreaming up new ways we can serve youth workers online.

What does this mean for the blog?  Not much, we’ll still be bringing you the same geeky thoughts, ideas and resources to help you in your ministry.

If you are coming to the National Youth Workers Convention this fall in San Diego or Atlanta please track me down and say “Hi”, I’ll also be leading a few technology seminars.  I’d love to grab a coffee and talk about geeky stuff.

Also, if you’d like to know what crazy projects I’m working on, follow me on my new YS twitter account YSChrisDavis.

    Hey Chris, I’m in a similar role at Youth for Christ/USA… I’m their new National Director of Digital Innovation. We’re still on the front-end of a three year overhaul of our strategy. I’ll be in Atlanta, also taking a grad course through Huntington University while at the conference. Let me know if you’re up for coffee and geeky stuff.
