I am a former History teacher turned youth leader who writes youth resources. This makes me really quite different from most ACW writers but people have been most supportive and welcoming.
I enjoy working with pre-teens as well as teenagers. My aim is to provide some depth of teaching for those who need it (leaders included) as well as a wide range of fun ideas because every youth group is different.
I recently published ‘Fit 4 Gold’, a short discipleship course which can be used with or without a sports theme. Although this was marketed through ‘More Than Gold’, it pushed me into launching my own web site which I will need for promoting other material. This will offer WinZip folders and CD discs so that I can include PowerPoints, web links and video clips. It is also easier to update material as well as being cheaper when you are just starting out.
I currently work on my own much of the time which slows me down a good deal, but it seems to be the forward for the time being. (An editor with an understanding of youth work and a similar vision would be a tremendous asset!)
