We've called this blog the 'Youth Vanguard'. It's got youth in the title, cause it's about young people - that's pretty simple. But, what's with the 'Vanguard' bit? Vanguard simply means the forward party, the group who are pushing ahead, testing out, trying, scouting. We are not claiming that our little group is some sort of leader in youth ministry. Rather, this is where the members of our group push ahead with ideas about youth ministry they are working on, where we try out thoughts on others. This blog is the forward party for ideas that will hopefully become polished pieces of writing published in youth ministry books, journals and magazines.
Hope that makes sense. We think it's cool.
