I’m so excited to be traveling to the Simply Youth Ministry Conference! This is my second year and I’m even more pumped than I was last year! Stories of transformation will connect us to God and to each other. Moments of honesty and discovery will launch our hearts into a new season of youth ministry. And we’ll meet up with new youth ministry friends, friends we can collaborate with to extend our reach to the teens who haven’t been introduced to the amazingly loving God we serve.
There are some amazing youth ministry friends I can’t wait to see and you need to meet if you haven’t met them already. They will inspire and encourage the youth work you do. Meet these awesome ministry friends in the Shelter Area on the second floor near registration.
YMA specializes in attending to the big picture stuff so you can stay focused on the day to day work of running your ministry. If you’ve struggled with volunteer recruiting, building a purposeful curriculum plan, implementing regular processes, setting clear targets for your ministry, and tracking your progress, we know the reason.
The Youth Cartel’s mission is to encourage and challenge adults who minister to youth through holistic professional coaching, strategic consulting, transformational events, and inventive resource development that advance youth ministry in new ways.
We’re better together! God never intended that we do youth ministry in isolation… we need each other. A local ministry network is a community of youth workers, students and caring adults who unite by praying together and sharing relationships, resources and strategy to reach and equip teenagers for Christ.
Simply Youth Ministry has provided us a full platter of workshops and general sessions. I will be facilitating three of them and would love to meet you if you decide to attend one of the workshops I’ve listed below. And in between all that’s happening, I will be roaming, looking to connect with old and new friends, maybe sitting for a moment to process and sip coffee.
If you’ve got time to connect, or want to process and sip coffee with someone hit me up on Twitter @Therersa_Mazza. Here’s my schedule. If one of these workshops I’m facilitating speaks to your ministry needs, I hope you’ll consider joining me!
