I have just come back from Youthwork the conference and now I have a head full of ideas for next year.
There was much talk about how we as youth workers support and encourage parents. With speakers such as Rob Parsons and Ali Campbell encouraging us to provide resources and events which encourage and promote the family unit in church (whatever shape that family might be) and Cris Rogers inspiring us to teach the Bible in new and beautiful ways, I now have an armful of ideas to implement. Add onto that Jason Gardner’s succinct explanation of life for young people now and its battle stations for the new year.
Also some personal excitement theology wise coming across the Theology Network, St Mellitus and St. Paul’s God Pod all of which will help me go deeper without having to pay thousands of pounds for a theology course.
One happy youth worker here 🙂
