Planting a Growing Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry?  Why?

Have you ever wondered why we do the things we do in the name of youth ministry?  There is a reason and should be a method to our madness.  During this session, we will discover some methods for this madness.

The Dreaded “P” Word

Have you ever been setting up for a youth gathering and realized you had drinks and ice, but no cups?  This was caused by either a lack of planning or failure to carry out the plan.  We will explore how to plan for success and succeed with your plan.

The Learning Terrarium

If your classroom were a planet, could humans survive on it?  Many times we lose the battle in teaching before we ever open our mouth to teach.  This session will explain the importance of the proper classroom atmosphere and how to plan your lesson in such a way that will capture your teens attention and get God’s point across.

What Now?

Many times we attend seminars and get good information, but don’t know what to do with it when we get home.  This session will address how to start the process of making a long-term difference in your ministry.

…And Now The Goodies

There is a wealth of resources for youth ministry today.  The problem is where do you find them and how do you know which ones are worth buying.  We will look at some of the latest resources and give you directories of the companies who make materials geared specifically for teenagers.
