THE NATIONAL YOUTH MINISTRY WEEKEND
Youth ministry can be a lonely and thankless task. Even as volunteer leaders, we’re often left alone to serve young people - especially in churches where so many people claim not to understand them. Feeling like you - or your small team - are on your own can be draining and even demotivating. That’s why gathering together with hundreds of other youth leaders, from right across the UK, can be so important and life-giving.
Many of us still remember standing together in the hall at the first Youthwork the Conference event in Southport, way back in 2003. It felt electric to be among 600 youth leaders gathered in a packed theatre, all struck by the same realisation that we weren’t alone; that we stood there united by our love of God and our passion to serve young people. We want to create a similar moment on Friday 10th November this year, when a similar number gather in Birmingham for the first National Youth Ministry Weekend.
It’s not just about being part of the big crowd though - getting away for the weekend with hundreds of like-minded youth leaders gives unparalleled opportunities for networking, sharing ideas, and perhaps most importantly, making new friends. We can’t think of a better reason to invest in the NYMW - for you and your team.
