Totally Catholic Youth Ministers Lounge

Are you in youth ministry and you've had it with crazed parents? Rollin' your eyes at the pastoral council? Tired of administration work? Love youth? Love the Church? Appalled at parish politics? Looking for some good games? For a creative ways to teach a lesson for Religious Ed? Just need a place to veg out and say "phew! Someone outside of the parish to talk to!"? Grab y'r Starbucks, turn the computer away from the staff's eyes, grab a seat on a donated dusty couch and let it all go.

Church History Resources

Does anyone have any good resources for Church History?

I'm doing a trial run of a class we'll be doing next year for our post-Confirmation 11th and 12th graders. It is sort of an AP Theology course-much more in depth than their RelEd classes yet not quite College level. I took Church history as a course in school, but it was never my forte. Any good adult reads? (they want challenging information)

One thing that I have found to be be very effective is a list of different churches and their date of origin and founder. I've had kids who have been in Catholic schools all of their lives who are AMAZED that the Catholic Church is the only one founded by Jesus Christ in 33 AD.
