My Day of Networking I spent the day meeting people who I have spent three years stalking…er blog-reading. I met people who are in the YouthMin.Org Facebook group, and had lunch with them. I met some fantastic women in ministry (#womanyouthpastorswag) who I have “lady youth pastor crushes” on. I then got to talk about blogging with some of the best bloggers I know!
Opening: General Session and Worship (Emphasis on Prayer)I want to preface tonight with the fact that I had been concentrating on the spiritual discipline of prayer for the entire month of February, so how perfect was it for me, personally, to have a night focused on prayer? Rocked my socks off. I’ve been learning a lot about how, when we ask God for prayer, we need to BELIEVE it can happen.
- That kid in your youth group who you feel will never have that come-to-Jesus moment? BELIEVE that God can work in his heart. Don’t give up.
- That parent who is disconnected from their teenager? BELIEVE that when you pray, God can impact their life so that they impact their teenager.
- You feel like your youth group will never grow? BELIEVE that God CAN make it grow. Don’t give up praying for it.
