Ignatius the Ultimate Youth Pastor

The video below turned up on the Vertizontal blog. It's well put together, and the cast have a easy approach to their roles. Vertizontal thinks it explains things a little too much, but compared to some Christian videos I think it does pretty well.

It was shot by Taylor Robinson and George Wiley, with video post by Jason Poole and audio by Eric Chapman and Nate Dregger. The role of Ignatius is played by Josh Keefer. Written and directed by Travis Hawkins. Student Life produced the video for a free youth minister event called Refuge. It was conceived as a satire for what they consider to be an unhealthy "rock star" culture that has been growing inside Christendom, as well as an encouragement for the unheralded heroes on the front lines of ministry.

I think most youth groups would get a good laugh out of it - and perhaps even find the idea behind it thought-provoking.
