In this episode, I talk with Orange Specialist Charlie Conder who serves and consults with student pastors that utilize XP3 Students. Charlie shares about partnering with schools, and gives us the inside scoop on a partnership she spent ten years building with local schools in her area. She walks through what that partnership looks like, how it is student led, and how you can empower students in your ministry to lead in their schools. We also talk about being a woman in church leadership, specifically student ministry, and how to embrace that calling in spite of stereotypes or other barriers.
