Iron on Iron: Jody Livingston Breakouts


August 21-22, 2015

Jody Livingston wasn’t able to be a part of our 2014 student ministry conference, but we can’t wait for him to make it up this time around. Snowbird is passionate about discipleship, and Jody’s passion for discipling and training up other student pastors fits right in line with our mission.

Over the past couple of years, his passion for equipping youth pastors has flowed out through his blog, More recently he has begun producing regular podcast show geared towards bringing in student ministry experts for candid interviews in their specific areas of experience.


Jody will be joining the regular SWO pastors and teach two breakouts at Iron on Iron. Check out the topics below and head over to the Iron on Iron info page for videos and more information.

  • Benchmarks in Ministry and Preparing for Longevity
  • Building a Strong Youth Ministry Team

More on Jody’s Background:

“I am married to the most amazing woman and friend, father of three daughters and one son, owner of one (mostly white and a lot of rust) 1972 VW Super Beetle, and have been in Youth Ministry for over 15 years. I am passionate about Student Ministry and helping Student Pastors make it for the long haul.  Over the last 15 years I have served as a Youth Pastor in a volunteer role, bi-vocationally and in my current position in a full-time capacity at Kennesaw First Baptist Church.  Those churches have varied in size (and budget), style, and community culture.  These experiences have given me a much broader understanding of Student Ministry and the challenges it brings.”
