If you weren’t at The Summit a couple of weeks ago, make sure you don’t miss out on the Youth Cartel’s next event – Open Boston – on February 2, 2013.
This is a new kind of youth ministry conference that will be focusing on a wide range of different ideas – you can check out the manifesto here. One of the best things is that tickets will start from just $25, making it much more affordable.
And now there’s another good reason to be there – Shae will be one of the speakers! She’s going to be talking about “helping your students think globally” and this will be:
An informative and practical session about how to help young people in youth ministries internalize global issues in youth work and turn those changed attitudes into action. We’ll look at how youth ministers can engage young people in the process of global learning that goes beyond being sympathetic. This session provides practical tools and tips on how to engage young people in the church in global issues through empathy and community volunteering opportunities.
I can’t recommend this highly enough and not just because I’m her husband! Being at Shae’s session will be worth the $25 by itself, but there are so many other great speakers and sessions, there’s really no excuse not to be there.
Unless you live thousands of miles from Boston.
Even then, I’d recommend jumping on a plane to be there.
I’ll be there as well (albeit as a learner rather than a speaker), so come meet Youth Workin’ It at Open Boston. Don’t miss out – register here now.
