I am convinced that I work with the best Junior High Pastor in America. Heather Flies has been at Wooddale Church for 10 years now, and among the students that she loves is my daughter. Heather has been making a huge impact on youth ministry nationwide for several years now. She serves on Youth Specialties national CORE training team, was a featured speaker at DCLA 2006, and is so well respected. Youth Specialties has a monthly podcast that they make available for free to anyone who wants to grow. On the podcast they interview some of the most influential voices in youth ministry. This month’s interview features Heather talking about the unique calling of the middle school pastor. You can check it out here.
Heather is also the author of an extraordiary new book on talking to your teenage daughter. I’d highly recommend it. You can order it here or pick up a copy in the Wooddale Church Bookstore.
