My friend Trent Cornwell is organising a very unique event called Youth Pastors Mobilized. You can read what he wrote below and sign up to get involved.
Some of the greatest advice I have received in youth ministry has come from missionaries. I find that in many ways they are working in the same line of work that I am in more then some of the youth pastors I know. They are training leaders in the hopes of one day leading leaders of leaders. It is imperative for their work to train someone who will be able to replace them. Even though I do not have the same count down clock of 4 years as many of them would have – I do only have a few years before they will leave high school.
With this being said, we came to an idea while hearing about an online conference called the Nines. I know that me and youth pastors from across America would benefit from hearing some good, sound, Biblical advice from our missionaries. God has greatly blessed with a network with young, passionate group of missionaries that God is greatly blessing.
I will post more information over the next couple of months. If you would like to sign up to receive email updates please go to www.ypmobilized.info. This event will be hosted by the BCWE Missions Network.
