Hour 1: National Network of Youth Ministries

Are we leaving a legacy for faithfulness? Join Dawn and Steve in the Morning for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about having an awareness of our Christian heritage. 

Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness, You who seek the LORD: Look to the rock from which you were hewn, And to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.   Isaiah 5:11

Mark Shaner of the  National Network of Youth Ministry has information on how youth ministers can connect and be sharpened in ministry by having community with one another. He is convinced more than ever that healthy and well-connected leaders will produce healthy and fruit-bearing ministries.

Mark is the Southeast Regional Coordinator for NNYM and has served young people since 1984. He has a huge heart for missions and has led 70-plus mission trips.  He also serves on the Board for Warner University, the HEART Missionary Training Village in central Florida, and he coaches with LEAD222. Mark authored a book, "To Russia with God's Love: When the Cold War yielded to the Prince of Peace" He has been married to Vickie since 1982 and they have four adult children currently serving in ministry.


Hour 2: The Legacy Imperative

Research reveals that the next generations are disconnecting from biblical values. Dr. Bob Petterson of The Legacy Imperative believes that until our grandchildren are spiritually alive, we will not see change in our culture. Dr. Bob gives us helpful insight into connecting with the next generation.

He is in demand worldwide as a speaker and has addressed audiences of more than two million in 30 countries. Dr. Bob earned his doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Dr. Bob’s The One Year Book of Amazing Stories: 365 Days of Seeing God’s Hand in Unlikely Places, was chosen by Barnes & Noble as one of its 10 “Top Picks."
