Here’s a question that might startle you at first but it’s a question you want to be asked! When you’re out at your local convenience store or grocery shopping, if you are not getting stopped by strangers or recognized by the locals there is a deeper issue than is apparent. As ministers truly serving our communities we need to be outward focused rather than staying sedentary at our desks… let’s venture beyond the four walls of our church to become the hands and feet of Jesus. \\ Focusing on strategies for making meaningful connections with local government, municipalities, school boards, as well as serving a alongside first responders in Police/Fire & EMS.

  • "Transgender" - More Than Meets the Eye. - Fabian Kalapuch, DYD, New Jersey Ministry Network

Our culture is crying out for freedom to "be who they are."  Students are overwhelmed with contrasting messages about gender, sexuality and identity.  The church has been silent for too long, but when we do speak we are fearful and timid.  What do we say?  What does the Bible say?  How do we teach it?  Fabian Kalapoch approaches this topic not only with year's of youth ministry experience, but years of research on this issue.  This session will guide you through the practical tips and skills that you might be missing or overlooking when dealing with this topic in your student ministry.

  • Planning Successful Discipleship - Shawn Folis

 Many youth leaders and pastors want their students to be lifelong followers of Christ. They spend countless hours preparing, writing, reading and preparing to disciple teens. However, many don’t have a plan. In this session we will lay the foundation to begin to strategically think about discipleship, envisioning what we want students to know upon graduation from our ministry and developing a plan that we can present to our pastors, parents and anyone who asks on how to get them there.
