It’s Halloween! It’s also Episode 31. Is that a coincidence, or are there darker forces at work?
In this episode, Steve and Mathew share our stories of the times we were scared in youth ministry. We’ve both lost kids on trips (well, almost). We’ve both scared them as often as possible. And we both have crazy stories to tell. Steve’s youth group used to meet in a haunted house (for real). For some reason he thought it was a good idea to terrify middle school girls with a re-enactment of Jesus raising a little girl from the dead. (It was worse than a scene from the Exorcist.) Mathew once hosted a Halloween party that was crashed by an inappropriately bulging Ninja Turtle and a risque Naughty Nurse. He also left his students on the hayride while he fled for his life from a costumed shotgun-toting maniac. Not our finest moments.
Oh well, we’re not monsters, we’re just knuckleheads. All that matters is that we get to eat all the candy leftover on Thursday.
So turn off all the lights and enjoy the spooky fun with Episode 31 — Our Spookiest Episode Yet!
Yes, Steve’s group actually met in a haunted house and there is a Ding’s Dock
Mathew is right! There is a Ding’s Dock. (Watch how you say it)
