I got a great chance to talk to Mark Ordus, a real live pastor who had a series on sex with his students! He's the Pastor of Student Ministries at Crossroads Community Church in Ottawa Lake, Michigan.

He recently did a series on sex with his students and we got a chance to catch up after things wrapped up. It was a cool conversation because we got to look at what he did, what he'll do in the future, and how things went!

Here are some things to think about:

    Record your talks! This is always good for practice, but it also helps include students who can't show up. Send your message to parents so they know EXACTLY what was said and nothing gets missed. You probably want to encourage parents to ACTUALLY teach their kids where babies come from. For real. Talking about sex and porn will be uncomfortable and messy. Go ahead and talk about it anyway.
