JUSTIN HERMAN! Even writing his name in ALL CAPS doesn’t do justice to the kind of leadership and energy he brings to everything he does. Justin Herman is Junior High ministry, from the tips of his toes to the top of his (admittedly balding) head. He loves junior high kids and he loves helping other youth workers become more effective. The folks over at Exxon-Mobil haven’t invented a gas with a high enough octane to match Justin’s engine. This just in: Chuck Norris recently changed his name to Justin Herman. Justin is like a turbo-charged quad shot of espresso, topped off with whatever it is that makes atomic bombs explode. The choice is simple. If you want to become a better leader, listen to the CONTROLLED CHAOS podcast. if not, way to go with your commitment to mediocre ministry.

Full disclosure: I don’t listen to many podcasts. I’m more of a music and books guy. But I listen to every episode of the Controlled Chaos Podcast. It’s about my tribe and my calling, and always leaves me either thinking, refreshed, or both.

Any Youth Worker with a measure of strategy knows that you grow a HS ministry through your MS strategy.  So, if you fancy yourself as a HS person.  Controlled Chaos is for you.  If you are a MS person, duh…this is for you.  And, If you find yourself trying to figure out how to reach MS in your HS and MS student ministry..guess what?  Controlled Chaos is for you.
