    Summer will soon be drawing to a close, and your church has probably taken a youth ministry trip or two this season. These trips are valuable and meaningful experiences in the spiritual formation of your youth. Many may have experienced Christ's love for the first time, re-committed themselves to their walk with Jesus, or been profoundly changed by what they saw and experienced. The next steps in the lives of students are important ones — how will they continue their spiritual formation as they come off the "high" of their trip experience? This workshop is led by youth ministry veteran and Kids Across America Director of Leadership Development Marvin Daniels as he shares his wisdom on continuing spiritual development "after the trip high."

    Transforming Perceptions of Youth Ministries (TPYM) is rethinking of the role of youth in the life of the church and community. It provides a framework for the church to address the need of youth to be socially useful. This doesn't mean simply providing opportunities for youth to serve, but to change perceptions and perspectives of youth and how we label them. It is seeing ALL youth created in the image of God (and thus imbued with inherent talents, skills and gifts); and not just as at-risk young people who need adults to fix them. TPYM is readying your church and adults to vievw youth as agents of transformation, and preparing them to become vital citizens of the community as they live out their faith.

  5. Mark Yarhouse is the author of Homosexuality and the Christian: A Guide for Parents, Pastors and Friends (Bethany House, 2010). Yarhouse is a psychologist and director of the Institute for the Study of Sexual Identity at Regent University. This webinar will discuss ways in which we can work with youth who are experiencing same sex attraction, without using labels or language that might push them into places they aren't comfortable, ready or equipped to process. This discussion is not about the theology of those experiencing same sex attraction, but rather about how we can be in discussion and journey with those around us.
