NYLC General Session

In this final General Session of the conference, Jeanne's goal is that all will have the opinion that "We get to do this youth ministry thing...We get to live in such a way that hell will regret that we found the purpose of our lives." She shares five principles to help us do this.

Special guest, G. H. Williams, who walked beside Martin Luther King, Jr. shares the significance of "a washcloth, a toothbrush and a dime," and challenges us to "count the cost" of what we choose to do with our lives. According to the late Martin Luther King, Jr., "If a person does not have anything in this world worth dying for, he is not fit to live." What do you burn for?

Jon has a full-time job in sales and is also a volunteer with LifeChurch.tv & Switch Youth Ministries. Paula has volunteered for many years in youth ministry, including one of Jeanne's. Along with being volunteers, they have two small children at home. It's challenging balancing a ministry and a family, but it's especially challenging for volunteers that also are working a full-time job besides. In this session, Jon and Paula share how they balance it all using a blueprint to help set priorities and, using wisdom from Proverbs 31, give four examples of how they do it in their own lives by considering their options and making good choices, planting fruitful vines and making the best use of what they are already doing, girding up their resources and planning for success, and finally taking time to evaluate what they're doing.


NYLC Breakout Session

The inner-city is full of obvious pictures of "broke" or poor citizens and families that are in need of a financial "rescue." Then there is the other side of the spectrum where you see people "broken" by bad choices such as drugs, alcohol, gangs, and single parent households. But there is a forgotten remnant of youth in the inner-city. They are the ones who live in between them both. These, many times, become a key bridge between your youth ministry, and truly impacting even the broke and broken youth in the inner-city.


NYLC Breakout Session

This is a follow-up to Josh McDowell's previous session, "Teaching Truths in Today's Youth Culture." In this session, "The Bible - Fact, Fiction Or Fable," Josh states we must instill in our kids not only what to believe, but also why they need to believe it, or we have failed them. Josh, once an atheist, investigated the Bible to disprove it and in the process, became a firm believer in the truths presented in the Bible. He gives us facts to back-up our faith and tips on how to share our faith with others.

You can also go to www.josh.org and download the PowerPoint with Josh's notes for this message. They're listed under "Resources" and entitled "The Bible Fact Fiction or Fable."


NYLC Breakout Session

If you've been called by God to relate to students, you have to get involved with them and relate to them where they are at. Jaroy Carpenter, with Solid Rock Resources, spends much of his time relating to students where they are at...often in public schools. Many people hesitate to speak in the public school system. They have a list of do's and don'ts and if you break one of the rules, you can ruin the chances of being asked backed or other speakers being asked into the school.

In this session, Jaroy gives simple steps to help take the fear out of speaking in a campus setting and lots of creative ideas that will get the kids' attention and won't offend their teachers or principal.


NYLC Breakout Session

Balancing family and youth ministry can seem like the impossible task to most conscientious ladies, but is it? In this session, two youth ministry veterans and exceptional moms will share some practical suggestions for balancing both worlds effectively. We're not saying that the task is easy. But in an era in youth ministry when spiritual "mom" and "big sisters" are desperately needed, it's a cause worth fighting for.


NYLC Breakout Session

Clint Thomas' ministry, Chaos Theory, is a media-rich, hard-hitting presentation that zeroes in on many of the destructive decisions confronting youth today. His edgy fast-moving MTV style format grabs and keeps the attention of audiences while delving into the issues of sex, violent entertainment, pornography, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse and other high risk behaviors. Dedicated to protecting our young people, Clint educates youth and adults alike not by telling teens what to think, but rather by causing them to think.

Most kids are pretty smart, they just haven't put the pieces of the puzzle together. In this session, Clint helps the pieces fall into place by asking the hard questions and stating the hard facts. How do you reach a generation that's lost in a culture that is selling kids all the wrong things? Teach them to think.

In the 12,333 Assemblies of God Churches today, 27% have paid youth leaders, 49% have a youth ministry led by volunteers and 24% have no youth ministry reported. 91% of the churches have 400 or less in attendance, 84% of the churches have 200 or less in attendance and 65% of the churches have 100 or less in attendance.

In this session, Jay Mooney, Youth Director of Assembly of God National, challenges youth pastors to reach out and mentor small churches that do not have the budget for youth ministry and help the start and grow youth ministries in these churches. Through purchasing and sharing tools such as thefiftytwo.com, an on-line, youth leader resource which offers a complete year of sermons, presentation slides, small groups, leadership helps, ministry strategies and multiple lists each containing 52 ideas, and bringing their own youth groups alongside, leaders can help smaller churches develop youth groups. "If you want to have lasting fruit in your youth ministry you need to have students in ministry, not just a student ministry. Launch you students in ministry...you'll be surprised what happens in their lives."

In this session, Dan gives us ways he has used successfully to help connect new students in his ministry.

NYLC General Session

When I started in youth ministry, I had about 20 kids in the youth group. My idea of success? A night together in youth service where Jesus showed up, kids laughed together and prayed together, and maybe even a new kid or so excitedly decided to give their life to Christ. I mean, back in 1970, that was my idea of a mind-blowing YOUTH MINISTRY SUCCESS.

It took only about three short months to start adding stuff to that original equation. Remember those 20 kids? Well, pretty soon, "real success" needed to include having about 30 kids show up! And somewhere through those opening, exciting months, something NEW to me was "born" in my life and head. It was small and almost a little "cuddly" at the beginning. Kind of like a friendly little "stuffed animal" from my past. But on closer examination, it wasn't that innocent and it sure wasn't that "cuddly." I had given birth to a small, not-too-scary-looking DRAGON.

So my prayerful goal for this message is to remind all of us that the "DRAGON OF SUCCESS" is maybe one of the most ferocious enemies ANY of us will ever face in our own minds...but we'll ALL face him...whether we're the "lead person" on the team, an amazing volunteer assistant, or just a career-orientated person who's just trying to get ahead on the job-site.

I'm LIVING, TRANSPARENT, VULNERABLE PROOF that THE DRAGON OF SUCCESS can hang around for a pretty long time. The point I'm trying to make is that probably all of us have VARIATIONS of this "Dragon" that Jesus and His love wants to slay – dragons that are fed by our insecurities, our fears, our needs for approval and acceptance.

Lovingly,


NYLC General Session

Mark Batterson, shares insight from his latest book, The Circle Maker According to Pastor Mark, "Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn't just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It's a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us." Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer, and to God's vision for your life, than what you're experiencing? It's time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker---a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people. What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? Sharing inspiring stories from his own experiences as a circle maker, Mark Batterson will help you uncover your heart's deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.
