Resources for Youth

The web is an incredible source of information.  Have you made a commitment to use the internet to help you grow closer to God or are you allowing the internet to tempt and trap and destroy you or to cause you to waste your life when you could be living an incredible life of radical obedience to the God who created you and loves you more intimately than you will ever know?  For every 30 minutes you spend on facebook or youtube or gaming I challenge you to spend the same reading, watching or listening to resources that feed you and help you grow spiritually as you seek to become more like Christ.
