I just got this message in my e-mail:
Co-founder and owner of Youth Specialties (YS), Mike Yaconelli, was in a fatal car accident in northern California late last evening. Mike has touched the lives of many of us through his ministry, through his speaking, and through his writings. He will be missed.
I can’t believe it. I mean he wasn’t a personal friend, but I did talk to him a couple times and really enjoyed his influence on youth ministry. He WILL be missed.
