The challenges facing youth workers who lead and love kids in today’s world are immense. Perhaps you’ve found yourself trying to understand how to help kids navigate the pressures, stresses, and anxieties of life. Your kids are seeking to settle into an identity in a world where sex and gender identity options are more than you can count or even make sense of. You’ve got kids struggling with behavioral issues, physical disabilities, and learning challenges. You wonder about how to best minister to families. You’re trying to figure out how to nurture kids into using social media and technology in ways that advance rather than undermine their human flourishing. If this isn’t confusing enough, we’re trying to develop and lead volunteer teams that are equipped to effectively minister to kids. Perhaps most importantly, you desire to effectively teach the truths of God’s Word to your students in ways that nurture them into a life-long and dynamic faith in Jesus Christ.
It would be silly for us to ask if this is you. . . because we know that it is. This is what the youth ministry landscape looks like for all of us as we enter into 2023. And that’s why The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding is partnering with our friends at Reformed Youth Ministries to sponsor the first-ever Northeast Youth Ministry Summit from March 6-9 in beautiful Ligonier, Pennsylvania. I want to personally invite you to join us as we focus on the theme of “Biblical Hope for Anxious Hearts.” Our four-days will bring together youthworkers not only from the Northeast, but from across the country. We’ll gather together for morning plenary sessions, worship, 28 different break-out sessions taught by 16 different experienced youth ministry trainers, shared meals, community building, and a whole lot more.
Don’t wait too long to register as space is limited and registrations are coming in! Take some time to check out our speaker lineup and seminar list. You can learn more and register by visiting The Northeast Youth Ministry Summit homepage!
