Bridging the Gap Youth Ministry Workshop
Equipping the Saints 2019
Rev. Ruben Saenz III
10:45 am - 12 pm
According to Lifeway Research since 2014 over 70% of all youth and young adults ranging in the ages of 15-19 leave the church, or take what we would call a hiatus. This number is only going up. In light of the world we live in and the current state of our church, I believe we are in need of a new movement that truly starts from the bottom up.
We will look to share our story of Aftershock Youth Ministries. A program that truly launched in 2012 with only 4 youth, to now a program that averages 160 mid-week and over 600 in full connection. Again, we want to take what we have learned and share it with all, so that we can in hope see transformation and radical growth happening across our conference and denomination.
So I would like to invite you to join us, for a time of learning, sharing, and growing. There will be practical information and action plans that you don’t want to miss.
Through it all, may we set our eyes on the true prize that is Christ Jesus, with the hope of lives being transformed and in turn the making of new disciples for Jesus Christ will occur! Remember, we are not speaking to just empty chairs; we are speaking to lives and souls!
So, will you help Bridge the Gap?
