Hot Link: Xtreme Youth
"The Web is a crazy, wild place," this site's mission statement reads. "It has a lot of bad stuff, and it has a lot of good stuff. extremeyouth.com is good stuff."
The official site of Dayspring Community Church in Auburn, Indiana, Xtreme Youth features good stuff like photos of youth group events, a mailing list to keep students up-to-date, a testimony and links to more than 1,000 online games. There's also a link to www.crosswalk.com, where you can listen to one of six cyber-radio stations.
Xtreme Youth's Webmaster is 17-year-old Tim Lyne. "I want the site to be more than just a nice little page for Xtreme Youth kids to visit," he says. "I really want it to be a place where non-Christians get attracted by the games and music but get their hearts reeled in by the message."
