"I really prefer not ever having any time away from my students," said no youth minister ever!
As youth ministers and lay youth workers, we love students. But, we have a tremendous need for worship experiences, fellowship, resources and training alongside other adults who do in their own churches what we do in ours. We need time with adults who have devoted their lives to serving students. Youth Ministry Conclave provides these things and more.
Conclave will take place at the Arlington Convention Center, October 12-14, 2015.
All the details, as well as scholarship information and registration pricing, may be found at www.texasbaptists.org/conclave.
Consider the numbers:
Recently, a student minister from South Texas related that he never intends to miss Conclave again, for he missed it last year and "ran out of steam" before the year ended. A metroplex youth minister wrote of being "greatly blessed through the practical teachings/workshops." A student minister from far west Texas mentioned receiving "just what I needed to continue the work the Lord has called us to do."
As I travel across our great state of Texas, I meet youth ministers who tell me Conclave is the one time each year they can relax, worship, learn and connect.
Would your youth minister – and your youth ministry – benefit from such an experience? Could your church spare them for the 48 hours (Monday noon to Wednesday noon) to attend Conclave?Encourage your youth minister and your youth workers to join us in October. And, who knows? To add to the excitement, the Texas Rangers may be in the playoffs at Globe Life Park, right next door to the Convention Center!
Texas Baptists is a movement of God’s people to share Christ and show love by strengthening churches and ministers, engaging culture and connecting the nations to Jesus.
The ministry of the convention is made possible by giving through the Texas Baptists Cooperative Program, Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions, Texas Baptists Worldwide and Texas Baptist Missions Foundation. Thank you for your faithful and generous support.
