Tweet: Intercultural ministry is happening. It's something that is bringing young people joy. It's something that they are wrestling with. And it's something that God is calling us into.



Tweet: Just because young people are more exposed to diversity doesn't mean they always know how to navigate it. Find out how you can nurture meaningful connection in your ministry on the #FYIonYouthMinistry podcast.
