Scott Rubin is director of Elevate, the junior high ministry at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago. He’s worked with that church’s middle school students, volunteers, and parents for more than 15 years. Scott, who’s also a speaker and tweets a bit @Scott_Rubin, has written LIVE™ 5th & 6th Grade, Middle School Ministry, and The Red Stuff. He likes his wife, his three sons (all teenagers), and Michigan State basketball. He just wishes Chicago was next to the ocean.
