Dear Pastor, Youth Pastor or Youth Worker,
I wanted to tell you about a conference the Lord has laid on our hearts specifically for those working with teenagers. I know how much time and effort youth workers put into their ministry to see the next generation reach their full potential for Christ. Youth workers spend countless hours on sermon preparation, Sunday School lessons, writing notes of encouragement, and time in prayer. The sad reality is that even when all that is put into the ministry, many youth workers feel as if they are ineffective.
Last year we had an outstanding Razors Edge Conference with Pastor Scott Hanks. He came with a whole lot of practical helps for youth workers trying to be effective with teens. We are looking forward to our third conference on January 8-9, 2018. The conference will start at 6:00 pm with a meal on Monday night, and the last session will end at approximately 4:00 pm the next day. You can find the entire schedule at http://faith-bc.com/razors-edge-conference.html. Also, the attire for the conference is casual!
This year’s main speaker will be Pastor Jay Reed from Suwanee, GA. He will preach twice, as well as teach a session on “Building Momentum in the Youth Ministry.” This will be a great opportunity for us to learn from a man who is in demand to preach youth meetings all across the nation and who has been serving faithfully in the ministry for many years. Four other sessions will be taught by the following: Pastor Terry Anglea (“Staying Blameless in the Ministry”), Mrs. Joyce Anglea (“She will Do Him Good”), Brother Tony Edmonds (“In It for the Long Haul”), Bro Steve Cavanaugh (“Pros and Cons of Today’s Technology”) and my wife, Mrs. Leah Hall (“Your Home and Your Husband’s Ministry”).
The cost of the conference is $75 per youth worker (spouses attend free) if registered by December 22, 2017, included in that price is a hotel stay on Monday night at the Comfort Inn in Bourbonnais, IL. Late registrants will not receive hotel accommodations.
