I started a Myspace page a few months back, and updated it about once a month. My only Friends were my pastor and a couple of seminarians. But when I got my student appointment, I found three youth affiliated with the church who wanted to know if I had one. We Friended each other, and they seem delighted to relate with me in this medium. So now I'm going to start listing my Myspace URL with the rest of my contact information on the back of the Sunday bulletin and start using it as a regular point of contact with the handful of youth who are affiliated with my church.
What have been your experiences using MySpace in youth ministry?
