Hi awesome youth leaders, workers & friends!
Editor of Group Magazine, Rick Lawrence, wants to let you know about an amazing opportunity, and so do we. Check it out:
In the last century, the church’s “vital signs” have never been more ominous—numbers are down, paid youth workers have gone part-time or volunteer, churches are closing, and its voice in the culture is becoming more marginalized every day. How will this impact your youth ministry, your calling, and your life? It’s time for prophetic voices to lead the church out of this wilderness—will yours be one of them?
Future of the Church: Leading the Way is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and join other influencing church leaders for challenging dialogue that will lead to innovative solutions—shaping the future of the church and your youth ministry.
Thom and Joani Schultz, founders of Group Publishing, will soon publish a groundbreaking book titled Why Nobody Goes to Church Anymore—they’ve been traveling around the country for 16 months gathering stories about the struggles facing the church, and the “best practices” among those churches that are thriving.
Join them, and dozens of remarkable and influential leaders, on October 28-30, 2013 for guided group discussions with cutting-edge researchers, ministry practitioners, authors, and thinkers. The goal is to come away with compelling practices that will forever change the way you think about and lead your own ministry.
