the web minions have been busy beavers, getting ready for this day; and now it’s here:
the 2011 middle school ministry campference website is now live, and registration is officially open!
i’m so pumped about this thing. here’s the copy from the home page of the site:
It’s camp for junior high youth workers!
Let’s be honest about this: it’s not every adult who wakes up thinking, “How can I spend some time with 13 year-olds today, and influence them for Jesus?”
That calling, that wiring, is extremely unique and wonderful. And our wise and wonderful God, who cares so passionately about the young teens in your church, chose YOU! You are truly one of the few, one of the unique; and you are God’s plan for showing love to middle schoolers.
But this ministry is difficult, and sometimes lonely. You need to be surrounded by others who understand you, who share your calling. That’s why we created the Middle School Ministry Campference.
We’ve blended the best of a conference with the experience of a camp for youth workers who care about young teens. Whether veteran or rookie, known or unknown, we’ll all be on this adventure together.
This is not a traditional conference, but a tribal gathering and growth event, with an opt-in mix of learning, worship, community, dialogue and play.
Bring a team if you can; but even if you come alone, you won’t be alone for long!
