Episode 55 of The Student Ministry Podcast brings back Mike Haynes to talk about racial reconciliation. While racism has been a thing for a long time, recent events have increased our awareness of it. So how do we talk about it with our students? And how do we lead and shepherd them well through this?

Mike speaks about his own experiences as an African American but also shares some amazing wisdom on how to guide students through all of this. As a youth worker, you already believe in what God can do through the next generation. Mike guides us in how we can help teenagers tap into their God-given potential to change the world.
