Q&A Session Part 1

30 Nov , 2012  

Here is the 1st set of the Q&A session from my community of FB friends, Twitter followers and #stumin/#youthmin followers… Shoot me an email or DM me on Twitter/FB, if you have any questions: corey@awakenthisheart.com or @meCoreyG

Riley C. from TN asks: “Who are some of the voices pastors/preachers) you glean from?”

– Currently, I mainly listen to and glean from these leaders… Judah Smith, Chad Veach, Jentezen Franklin, Francis Chan, Mark Driscoll, Robert Madu and Billy Humphrey (IHOP-ATL Director, former YP). All of these guys (except Billy) are outside my “circle of influence/friends”


James F. from South GA asks: “As a Youth Pastor/Speaker, what have you adapted as a Philosophy of Ministry and why?”

– Team, Creative & Parents – ALL For JESUS! More detailed information on this can be found here: Philosophy of Ministry

Colin W. from NJ asks: “I’m trying to encourage my friend who recently got saved, what is the best book of the Bible you recommend for them to start reading first?”

– I always recommend to new Christians to start reading the book of John first then followed by the book of Romans from either the NIV or ESV BIBLE. 3rd would probably be Colossians and then the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, & Luke). These are just personal preferences…


Brian S. from GA asks: “I recently was hired at my home church as the new youth pastor. What advice would you give me starting out in ministry?”

KNOW, INVEST, HONOR & PREACH… Know your calling & identity is in Christ. Invest in your leaders, invest in good mentors & honor your pastor & the vision! Preach Jesus – 2 Cor. 4:5
