If you are a youth leader, youth pastor, a young parent, or someone who has a heart for youth ministry, join us for a time of sharing from a few speakers and prayer time!
Speakers will share:
How their church is working in their ministries to reach out and connect to their youth.
Their strategies to help the youth see the relevance of God’s teaching in the youths’ lives.
How their church is keeping them engaged and challenged spiritually rather than going through the motions.
