here it is, december 19. maybe your youth ministry budget is only 1/2 over, or even 1/4 over, if your church has a fiscal year that’s different than the calendar. but most youth workers i know — if they have a budget at all — have budgets that wrap up when the father time waves goodbye and that diapered baby of a new year shows up. and my experience tells me the vast majority of youth workers, at this point in the year, fall into one of two categories:
- your budget is gone. done. spent. there are only dust bunnies left in that thing.
- you have dregs in your budget. like the last drip of coffee in the bottom of a cup, that has a few grinds in it; or like the nickel clinking around in your kid’s piggy bank. there’s not enough to go wild. you’re not even sure there’s enough to do anything with it.
if you fit #2 — we’ve got a screamin’ deal for you. you can lock in a rate cheaper than we will offer at any other time, for the Middle School Ministry Campference, or The Summit, for only twenty five bucks now. surely, your dregs can cover that.
it you fit #1, or if you’re still saying, “budget? what budget?” we have a screamin’ deal for you also! c’mon: it’s twenty-five bucks. we’ll grant you temporary spiritual permission to consider this tithing. in fact, we talked to your church budget chair, and s/he asked that you handle it this way.
but just like 2012, this super dealio ends on december 31!
The Summit is a 2-day youth ministry event low on hype and high on story; low on entertainment and high on flammable ideas.
Here’s a sample of feedback from this year:
“You guys nailed it… great presenters, great vibe. It was exactly what I had hoped it to be.”
“I was blown away at how each presenter brought something incredibly helpful and thought provoking!”
We’re coming back in 2013 with a brand new group of presenters. We’re hoping you’ll plan to attend.
With a $25 non-refundable deposit, you’ll get our guaranteed lowest rate of just $109. You’ll reserve your spot and won’t have to pay your balance until November, 2013!
The campference is a 3 day gathering for youth workers who specialize in working with middle schoolers. Another thing that makes it unique is that we meet at a beautiful camp in Southern Indiana. With all-inclusive registration, once you get there we take care of the rest. (Lodging, food, activities.) There’s simply no other gathering like it anywhere.
But the Campference isn’t just a weekend full of lectures and long seminar blocks. There’s plenty of time for worship, play, and rejuvenation of your soul. It’s everything a tribal gathering should be!
With a $25 non-refundable deposit, you’ll get our guaranteed lowest rate of just $259. You’ll reserve your spot and won’t have to pay your balance until October 1st, 2013!
NOTE: Deposits are transferable, but not refundable.
Deposit deadline for both events is December 31st, 2012
