This crucial issue is one of the subjects covered in this Saturday’s Youth Ministry course at Redcliffe. Here are further details taken from Redcliffe’s website:
Youth Ministry Course – day two: Discipleship with bite (and boots)
Saturday 27 March 2010
9.30am (for registration) – 4pm
Two buzzwords in youth ministry at the moment are discipleship and evangelism. It is all very well using these words with young people but what do they really mean on a day to day basis? And perhaps more importantly how can we get young people to engage with discipleship and evangelism? The second of three Saturdays aimed at equipping youth workers and volunteers in churches will give us ideas how to do this.
Do your young people appear unmotivated when it comes to church and especially sharing their faith? Dot Tyler from Emerging Generation will be talking about the practicalities involved in getting young people excited about their faith, and encouraging them to share that faith with others.
Where does the Bible fit into all this? How can we get young people excited about, and actively reading God’s word? Fiona Bridges has been involved in youth work for a number of years both in Australia and the UK and will look at how we can get young people engaged with the Word!
Are your young people talking about doing short term mission in some far off corner in the world, or perhaps they are planning out a gap year before heading to university? Maybe you are even planning to take a group of your young people on a mission trip. Mike Frith runs OSCAR, a website about everything to do with mission, and has also been on mission to a wide range of places himself. He will be speaking on the ins and outs of young people and mission and the issues that you, as a youth leader, should be aware of.
In addition to seminars, the day will provide plenty of opportunity for networking and finding out about resources.
Cost: £18 per day or £50 for all three days. This will include a buffet lunch and refreshments.
