For more than three years, IGNITE Youth Leaders Day provided a fantastic community of youth leaders. But now Next Generation Ministries is making it even better with the Next Generation Ministries Summit!
Volunteers and pastors will gather for a day of learning, inspiration and community through workshops and learning tracks for Youth Ministry, Children’s Ministry, Young Adult Ministry and Camping and Retreat Ministry.
The revamped program will help leaders and churches of all sizes to engage the next generation of disciples and “grow young.” Keynote speaker Mike Park, from Hope West Side Church, will share practices for any church to begin or grow in their ministries with children, youth and young adults. Practical, specific workshops will allow all participants to focus their learnings around what is best for their church and community.
Come and be a part of God’s movement with the next generation of Jesus’ disciples!
Cost: $20 per person. Groups of 4+ only pay $80. Cost includes lunch.
