06 - Mark Eades and Boredom in Middle School Ministry

In this episode, I continue my conversation with Mark Eades, Middle School Pastor at New Covenant Bible Church. In this one, we talk about the odd compliment of having a middle school student tell you they're bored! We talk about:

  • It's not wrong for students to be bored
  • "I'm bored" is usually code for something different
  • During retreats, plan for extra downtime and space
  • The spiritual discipline of silence
