Over the past few years, the RCA has been working closely with several of the leaders at Fuller Youth Institute’s Sticky Faith program to give RCA youth leaders opportunities come together and consider how they can best prepare their teens for life after youth ministry and help them form a faith that sticks with them as they grow into young adulthood and beyond.
The RCA’s Synod of the Heartland is bringing in Brad Griffin, the Associate Director of Fuller Youth Institute, to do a two-day conference for youth leaders in Sioux Center, IA on Friday April 5 and Saturday April 6. Thanks to generous funding, the conference is FREE and open to anyone in the CRC who wants to join them for a time of learning and connecting with Brad.
If you can’t make it to Iowa, they will be making Friday’s sessions available online and and LIVE STREAMING Saturday’s conference sessions. So feel free to gather your team together and take advantage of this great opportunity to learn from one of the best thinkers in youth ministry today!
You can register to attend the conference or the live stream at www.synodyouth.org.
