I arrived in Pittsburgh yesterday for the National Youth Workers Convention, as part of the team who will be bringing you live blogging – including photos, audio and video clips – from all the general sessions and many seminars throughout the event. You can keep up with all the happenings by going to nywc.com/live (pittsburgh archive), where you can interact with us while we blog in real time, and also see a feed of blogs and twitter updates (here are mine) from the folks at the convention.
Because I arrived early, I had the opportunity to hang around with some very interesting people who’s names I knew but I’d never met in person, to talk about youth ministry and the projects close to each of our hearts. There are some very cool things coming down the road, all with the absolute intention of serving youth ministers as they serve teenagers in Jesus’ name. It was an invigorating time, and hopefully the first of many such interactions.
In a little bit, I’m heading over to the convention center to check in, find a few of my YMX people and then head into the Real World Parents presenter training. I’m very much looking forward to getting to interact with the material, and meet even more people!
