My name is Joshua Campbell. I am a youth pastor at San Saba’s First Baptist Church and a graduate from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. I love working with youth and it’s my passion to see them live their lives for the Lord. Technology is everywhere in today’s society. It can be a great asset to our lives and our ministries but on the other hand it can be detrimental to our students lives and our ministries. Satan is tempting our students (and us adults too!) with full and easy access to any type of content out there and now it is all becoming so much easier to access! We need to equip our students and parents on how to stay safe from the devils temptations and how to use technology effectively.
LTY articles will cover reviews of technology and how to protect and equip our students in this technological age. Please send us e-mails and questions you may have about anything dealing with technology and youth and we will be happy to answer and help you out in your quest for knowledge!
