The Bible-Centered Youthworker Conference 2016: 40 years From Now
Monday 25 - Thursday 28 January 2016
Time: 4:30pm, Monday - 12:30pm, Thursday
Venue: High Leigh, Hertfordshire
Organising body: The Good Book Company
We will tackle this crucial question together in two ways. First, by hearing clearly what God has said in his word. In the mornings, Jonty Allcock will lead us through the book of Numbers to help us gain insight into the nature of lifelong gospel ministry; then, in the evening sessions, he will apply it to our ministry with children, young people and families.
And we are delighted to welcome Christian psychiatrist Glynn Harrison to lead our group morning seminar that explores the clash between the gospel and the way our children are being shaped by modern views on self-esteem.
In addition, our engaging afternoon seminar streams will give practical training and help for you—whatever stage you are at in your ministry—whether you are just starting or have been working with young people for years.
Join us for what promises to be an exciting and innovative programme in a worshipful, warm and encouraging fellowship.
This conference is a place for busy family, youth and children’s workers to recharge their batteries, refocus their aims, and get tooled up for practical ministry in a warm, supportive and fun atmosphere. Wherever you’re at in your ministry—just starting out, or settled and serving—this is the conference for you.
Over the four days of this popular and growing conference, we aim to feed the minds of participating youthworkers, hone our Bible-handling skills, encourage our souls with the nourishment of God’s word, and spur each other on in the vital task we have before us.
This is the fourteenth in our annual series of residential conferences for those working with children and young people. Through an engaging mix of Bible-readings, talks, seminars and discussion groups, we get to grips with what the Bible says about the nature of gospel ministry in today’s culture.
Great teaching, practical training, stirring encouragement and relaxed fellowship with people who face the same challenges and issues as you do week by week.
We expect that most of the people attending this conference will be full-time children’s or youth workers attached to a church, but we welcome anyone involved in other aspects of youth work on a part-time or voluntary basis, particularly those who are new to youth work, or those who may be wondering about whether they are called to youth work as a ministry.
