We have these little get togethers...

 
 

Lots of stuff...

We try to help out with a lot of events that are already going on in different areas.  We don't have an desire to reinvent the wheel as much as help people that are already doing great stuff.  This leads to a bit of randomness in our event schedule...but we kind of embrace that.  Random isn't bad. (Right?)


And now for something completely different...

We have felt the need to try a different kind of event.  We want to make it so more people and more ideas can be heard - including you with your ideas.

Our events are hosted by local churches/organizations.  We do most of the heavy lifting with planning and just as for someone to be a point person on site.  We also can always use help registering people and whatnot.  The beauty of our model is that the events can be large or small.  The flexibility makes it so there's no major pressure to get a "critical mass" so that it goes well.  Sure the are logistical adjustments based on the numbers, but they are minor.

The event has two main sessions: one in the morning and on just after lunch.  Speakers give a relatively short presentation (approx 10-15 min) about their youth ministry "idea."  It might be something new, or or might be  on the basics... but the presentations come one after the other.  Then we move to the "breakout" sessions where each speaker will have a room and people choose which presenter they want to hear more from.  This smaller environment also allows for the speakers to do Q&A, and even get feedback on their presentation.

We head to lunch and then do it all over again.  Speakers present at rapid fire, and then we head to breakouts.  We end the event with a closing session wrapping things up, thanking sponsors, and giving away some prizes. (Because... is it really a youth ministry event without prizes?!)
