Effective youth ministry wasn’t intended to be done alone! Teenagers need an army of people to love them and point them to Jesus. So, how does a youth ministry develop a team of adult leaders who want to be part of teenagers’ lives and contribute to the whole youth ministry? That’s what this session is all about. Veteran leader and team builder Doug Fields will present practical ways for the primary leader as well as the other leaders to build a healthy, team-oriented youth ministry.
Small groups are a proven way to help teenagers connect and feel heard, but effective small groups require good leaders. This workshop provides 5 basic tools that will help anyone leading a small group (and one of them is duct tape!)
Major cultural shifts are impacting the way this generation—the one sociologists have labeled “the Digitals”—experiences life and embraces faith. In this enlightening lab we’ll examine and explore the five most powerful of these trends, forces, and conditions and how they impact your students. As a result, your team will come away with tools and strategies to guide your students into deeper relationships with Jesus.
Four reasons why your youth need YOU to go to this:
• You'll get a theological model for why it’s important to deal with pain
• You’ll get with tools on how to help you deal with your own past, current and future hurt
• I'll model how to help your students reveal and begin to heal from their hidden or known pain
• Heck, it's really practical stuff all kids (and we ourselves!) need
• Bottom line: You can't take your students where you haven't gone yourself, so let’s dive in. It WILL bring depth to you and your youth!
How do you reach a generation starving for someone to notice them? How about "one kid at a time!" Let's pause for a moment, stop thinking about "program" and start thinking about connecting caring adults with kids. This session challenges and equips youth workers, both paid and volunteer, to initiate contact with today’s teenagers.
