Huntington University is offering two 1-day seminars for youth workers in the Chicagoland area!
Existing classes in Huntington University's graduate program of Youth Ministry Leadership have been shaped to allow experienced youth workers drop in for a day of rich interaction and learning from seasoned veterans in the field. The seminars being offered include:
Cultural Influences in Youth Ministry
This seminar will address the need to understand today’s rapidly changing world of children and teens and the culture’s influence on young people as a prerequisite for effective youth ministry. Youth workers will develop an understanding of the nature, functions, and influence of today’s youth culture on the emerging generations along with the skill necessary for continued assessment of youth culture as it continues to evolve and change. This seminar will prepare youth workers to increase their ministry effectiveness by equipping them to view and practice youth ministry as a cross-cultural ministry venture.
Collaborative Strategies for Youth Ministry
Can you improve your own collaborative expertise so much that God's Kingdom work will always surge forward because of the way you operate? This seminar will explore vision-casting, consulting, conflict management, and negotiation skills. Youth workers will consider their own context as they construct their skills around servant leadership values to develop an overall approach to youth ministry coalition building and collaboration.
