Today’s big youth ministry news is that Doug Fields will be leaving Simply Youth Ministry and partnering with Youth Specialties!


Amidst the announcement it isn’t very clear what Doug’s role will be – the press releases I’ve seen suggest he’ll be involved in the Events teams.

What do you think about the move?  Doug Fields is a major name the the youth ministry community. He has influence countless youth workers, including me.  Will YS see a jump in convention attendance?  Will SYMC see a drop in their attendance at next year’s SYMC?

What are your thoughts? Doug Fields and YS, good? bad? indifferent?
