As you know by now I have set myself a challenge to be more of a cheerleader for the wonderful human beings that surround me, inspire me, encourage me and generally give me hope for the future. So with that in mind every Wednesday I aim to share with you the profile of some fabulously divine human beings so you too may share in all that they are and bring to the world.

Welcome to #WonderfulWednesday No. 20

Todays utterly divine human being and I haven't met face to face in real life but have connected online in several different ways

So let me introduce them to you by sharing 10 things that totally captivate me about them:

1) They aren't afraid to share stories of failure  

2) They cheerlead for others    

3) They seek to be a useful resource for others   

4) They don't follow the crowd 

5) They step out of their comfort zone 

6) They see believe in humanity    

7) They love their mum  

8) They regularly make me laugh out loud    

9) They take risks 

10) They want to make the world a better place 

Who is this #WonderfulWednesday human you may ask ...

Luke Whyte 

Luke has spent the last 10 years working with young people in many different settings. 

From Church youth groups, local youth clubs, youth hostels and care homes, Luke has worked with a broad range of young people from a variety of different backgrounds. 

More recently Luke has started his own company, written a book, and launched an online training resource. But our paths really crossed when he asked to interview me for his weekly podcast show, The Youth Workshop

In the Youth Workshop podcasts Luke wants to resource other youth workers across the globe by introducing them to new people, sharing ideas and generating opportunities for people to share highs and lows of youth ministry. He has a great heart for equipping youth workers who lets face it, are often pushed for time and have non existent budgets. Aside from his passion to serve others in this way Luke is a funny guy, he makes me chuckle, he is real and the kinda guy you could easily share a milkshake with. Listening to his podcasts is just like actually being in on the conversations. 

You can check out Luke's sheer brilliance via his website or follow him on Twitter. If you are involved in Christian Youth Work of any nature you wont be disappointed!
