the other day, just as i got to the office early in the morning, i was surfing a few blogs, and clicked through onto an old friend’s blog. he had a link to a video of mike yaconelli. our good friend jim hancock produced this for us to use at a national youth workers convention after mike’s death. frankly, i’d forgotten about this video. it’s somewhat of a “best of yac” (at least “best of yac onstage at the NWYC”). it just slayed me. wonderful, inspirational, prophetic. dang, now i’m crying. this is why i do what i do.
for whatever reason, the embedding is turned off on this video — but here’s the link.

Mate, I downloaded this vid last year from the YS site, and have showed it to as many youth workers as I possibly could in the last couple of years here in NZ. It is one of the most encouraging inspiring things I have seen. It moves me everytime I watch it. Cheers for YS bro, from the many encouraged youth workers here in NZ
Btw, Ive uploaded the clip to youtube and allowed it to be embedded. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXERSvomVfA
I don’t think I had seen that one before. Chilling to think just how in tune with what ministry was really all about he was, and how not I feel in comparison.
I miss him….
Man, I miss that guy! Thanks for a great reminder Mike and Mark!
Thank you for finding that.
Imitate me as I imitate Christ.
What more can be said.
Thanks for the inspiration today!
Wow, It made me smile to see the video again, it made me cry to see the video again. I am simply a screwed up Messy Person…. I think that would make somebody smile.
I’ve been in youth ministry 20+ years. The day he died… I was balling like a baby at my computer. My wife asked what was wrong… I said… One of my heroes just died. Thanks for sharing that Marko… He is still an inspiration… needed that today!
hiya marko, pop by here every once in a while n got a nice surprise to see myself linked on such an awesome site! :D
Apologies abt the non-embedding… have updated it. Was personally challenged by Mike’s life as i watched the clip too. :p i guess i just din think to be linked but the internet really makes the world that much smaller… n perhaps a lil closer to what heaven will be like.
Blessings to you…

Yeah, I show that vid to my students every year as well! Sam, I am sure you got that vid off me
