The Razor’s Edge

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 Jerry Ross. He came with a whole lot of practical helps for youth workers trying to be effective with teens. We are looking forward to our next conference on January 6-7, 2020. The conference will start at 6:00 pm on Monday, and the last session will end at approximately 4:00 pm the next day. You can find the entire schedule at . Also, the attire for the conference is casual!

 The main speaker for the conference will be Pastor Mike Ray from Napa, California. He will preach twice, as well as teach a session on “Preaching and Teaching to Teens.” This will be a great opportunity for us to learn from a man who has been working successfully with teenagers for many years.

Four other sessions will be taught by the following:

Pastor Terry Anglea (“The Personal Touch”)

Mrs. Joyce Anglea (“Helps for Her”)

Bro Austin Merriott (“Not Being Weary in Well Doing”)

Bro Danny Ortiz (“Back to the Basics Through the Bible”).

By the way, please bring along some great teen activity and fund raising ideas to share!

 The cost of the conference is $75 per youth worker (spouses attend free) if registered by Friday, December 20, 2019, 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.


To register, please go to, fill out the form there and pay the full price or a $25 NON-REFUNDABLE registration fee which will be applied to your cost when paid in full:

Thank you so much for your time, and I hope to see you at the conference!
