BREAKOUTS

This year our break-out format will take on a slightly different format than previous years.  Breakout (A) will focus on the leader themselves, regardless of their age or the ministry they are serving in.  While Breakouts (B) & (C) will focus on ministry specific tools and training for the ministry context the leader is currently serving in (ie. Kids, JH, SH and/or YA Ministry).

A

11:00AM- 12:00PM

STUDENT LEADERS (UNDER 18)

A Bible Plan For Me/ It Starts With Me- How to read the Bible and apply it for life change, so I can teach others. 

ADULT LEADERS (18-49)

Helping the Hurting- Understanding the mental health crisis in the next generation and figuring out our role in caring and helping. 

50+ LEADERS

Helping Next Gen Identify the Mission of God-talking about MOG, back to Genesis and how this is all part of the social justice uprising in this next gen. as part of their mission given by God--racial injustice, climate change, poverty

PASTOR/MAIN LDR ONLY

Too Busy with Ministry for Ministry-prioritizing life, vision, boundaries, margin, being fully present wherever we find ourselves, so that we can answer our first Call...rule, subdue, make it better

B

12:45pm - 1:45pM

CHIILDREN'S MIN. LEADERS

???????

JR. HIGH MIN. LEADERS

Understanding Jr Highs- Jr. High ministry can be scary at best...they don't even seem to know what they want and so how can we better understand them so we can connect and care for them, yet still offer stability, discipline and order in our Jr. High ministry environments

SR. HIGH MIN LEADERS
Max Impact/ Min Time- how do we effectively impact and help shape the lives of SH's when we've only got them for a few short years and a core student is now attending 1x/month

YOUNG ADULT MIN LEADERS

How To Lead Your Peers-One of the most difficult areas to navigate in YA Ministry is for a young adult leader to figure out how to manage the awkward nuances that come when attempting to lead your peers...what is the best way to handle this

PASTOR/MAIN LDR ONLY
Creating Experiences That Lead To Life-Change-Jesus took His own disciples on an experience and educated them while He was on His way.  This experience absolutely changed their lives forever...how do we create adventure, challenge, hospitality...while on mission and following Jesus ourselves.  How do we ensure others will even want to follow us on these experiences?

C

2:00pm - 3:00pM

CHILDREN'S MIN. LEADERS 
???

JR. HIGH MIN. LEADERS 
Engaging Sm. Groups for Jr. Highs- Jr. High Small groups are an absolute work of art.  A lot of the success can rest on the group itself...but there are some best practices for any small group leader that can really help in building a healthy culture within your Jr. high Small group

SR. HIGH MIN. LEADERS
Handling a SH's BIG Q's-helping equip those who work with SH's to handle their BIG Q's, like how do I know God is real, is the Bible true, life after death, absolute truth?

YOUNG ADULT MIN LEADERS 

Bridging The Gap Between SH Min and Church Involvement-YA ministry is so much more than just an extension of SH ministry.  These YA's need to be encouraged and moved to get plugged into their local church...but what is the best way to do that, while still ministering to their unique needs

PASTOR/MAIN LDR ONLY
Navigating The Juggle-for those pastors who directly oversee and are engaged in Next Gen ministry from Kids all the way through to YA...how is this even possible?  Create a healthy panel discussion involving those are doing it and doing it well.
