Seminars for Youth

You Matter

This interactive seminar is a message of empowerment and encouragement to our Youth. They will learn the definition of you matter, why they matter, and how they know they matter. Biblical references will be presented so they can see for themselves they matter. Handouts, prizes and gifts will be given out. (This is our most requested seminar) Coming October 12, 2013

I’m Saved, Now What

Will address some of the “now what happens” after salvation questions. If we do not have any other answer for them than “pray about it” we risk losing them back into the world. We will explore some of the benefits of being a Christian and how that with God they can have a fulfilling life and do many of the same things that other people do. (workshop selected for www.bassconvention.org)

My BF/GF

The youth are always talking about or wanting to have a boyfriend or girlfriend so we will talk about Christian Dating. We will find out their definition of dating or courting and give biblical reference on what the word of God says. We will identify great biblical relationships as well as those we can learn from. The teens will share positive or negative relationships they see either in their family, among their friends or t.v. and we will discuss. Handouts, prizes and gifts will be given out. Coming July 20, 2013

The Youth will learn ways to speak positive affirmations in their life and how speaking negatively has severe effects on them. They will leave knowing they matter.

These Are My Confessions

Our youth is having a problem with living right. Some keep sinning and think as long as they ask for forgiveness before they die they will be ok. However, they do not realize they may not get the chance to repent or confess. We will explain what the difference is between repenting for our sins and confessing.

I Can Do What I want

The youth have struggles with cussing, being hot tempered, not respecting leaders and taking a lot of chances because they don’t believe things will ever happen to them. Rebellion and stubbornness are serious sins against God. They involve far more than being independent and strong-minded. Scripture equates them with witchcraft and idolatry, sins worthy of death. We will discuss how Saul became both rebellious and stubborn and what happen to him and ways to prevent it from happening to the youth.

Unconditional love

What is Real Love? Sometimes we confuse love and lust. Let’s find out what the difference is. Unlike lust God’s kind of love is directed outward towards others, not inward toward ourselves. God’s love is utterly unselfish. This kind of love goes against our natural inclinations. It is impossible to have this love unless God helps us set aside our own natural desires so that we can love and not expect anything in return. The more we become like Christ, the more love we will show to others.

Take off your Mask

Often times are youth as well as adults walk around with a mask on their face, as if everything is well. On the outside they may appear fine, but on the inside they are falling apart. Many of our youth deal with self-esteem issues and get little support from society and family with their cynical comments

Seminars for Adult & Student Leaders in Youth Ministry

This seminar offers the tools and principals you need to impact the youth in your ministry.

ReThink Youth!

Get a better understanding of youth today. How they develop, how they think and the challenges they are facing. Why they feel they are indispensable. Today’s youth are technical, fast pace and fearless. Is your youth program meeting their needs? This seminar is designed to equip leaders with new ideas to meet the needs of their youth socially, emotionally, academically and spiritually. The purpose is to rethink how you view youth, revamp traditions (that’s now working), and revive your programs/events in order to reach your youth. Items to be discussed are: Why the youth are not coming or staying, ways to reach the youth and getting parent support. This seminar coming November 9 2013.

Producing Student Leaders

If you want to grow your youth ministry consider having your teens run the ministry. Teens can attract their peers to join. Why not train them how to be leader’s in ministry. This seminar will show you how to get started, leadership training classes to offer and how to take your youth to the next level in ministry. This seminar is coming February 8, 2014

Team Relationship Building

Is your Youth Ministry having challenges reaching the youth? Is your youth ministry decreasing? Is your youth team all on one accord? If you answered No to 1 or more of these questions it’s time to build relationships with the team. Re-energized your youth ministry- there is no time like the present to re-focus your ministry on the importance on why you do what you do and make changes to guidelines. So grab your whole youth team for this interactive and team building seminar. (We have fun, get to know one another worksheets that need to be filled out prior to seminar) Coming September 2014

Our Youth“s World

In order to build relationships with our youth we need to understand their world. This seminar will explore the challenges are teen face everyday. Topics that will be viewed and discussed are media, sex, drugs and gangs. These issues for some time have been taboo topics in some Faith Based organizations. However to help our youth we must educate ourselves with their world. Coming January 2014
