ABOUT DAN ISTVANIK
I have been doing youth ministry in a church setting overall for 24+ years. I don’t claim to be an expert or some youth ministry guru. I am just an average youth pastor who is actively involved in day to day ministry and in the lives of students on a daily basis.
I have a Master’s in Middle School Education. I also have an Associates in Biblical Studies, and a Bachelor’s in Counseling Psychology & Theology. I feel like God has called me for the rest of my life to ministry in one form or the other. I will continue in the church ministry until God moves me on into ministry in another setting.
This site is an extension of the Middle Years Ministry Site. About 6 years ago when I could not find any great site or resources of middle school/jr. high ministry, I started popular site called “The JH Uth Guy”, then more recently about 2 years ago moved to a new site called “The Middle Years”. This site is the next step in offering a sharper better place to “Meet Your Ministry in the Middle”!
It is a middle spot for 5th-8th grade resources that are also for children’s ministry through high school ministry as well!
ENJOY! – DAN ,
