There was this post I scheduled for yesterday, a few thoughts on last week’s reading in Genesis, that was scheduled to post as I was traveling. Not only didn’t it post, but it isn’t here anymore. Boo. Welcome back to the blogosphere, Patti!
Instead, let’s chat. I’m working today from a coffee shop in Ocean Beach, California, spending time with my friend Adam McLane talking about life, youth min, publishing and whatever else happens to land in the conversation. Back in the day, then the internet was newer, we had a cool little web biz together – what a long way we’ve both come.
I’m in San Diego for the annual gathering of the National Network of Youth Ministries’ Ministry Council, to which I was recently appointed. I’m looking forward to spending time with this group of people to shape this organization.
Since we’re chatting, I have a few more events on my ministry calendar for the next couple of months – maybe I’ll see you?
Excel – January 18-20 – Saratoga Springs, NY I’ll be teaching a seminar for students and hanging with the Schenectady City Life high school ministry. This will be my 15th (!) Excel conference and I love making it a part of my life each year. Event registration info: http://excel.cdyfc.org.
Open Boston – February 2 – Gordon College, Wenham, MA I’m presenting a seminar in the Life of a Youth Worker track and I’m super excited to be part of this new kind of youth ministry training event. Event registration info: http://openboston.eventbrite.com.
Mechanicsburg BIC Middle School Retreat – March 1-3 – Somewhere in PA Psyched to teach and spend time with this fabulous group!
Break Out – March 8-10 – Saratoga Springs, NY Teaching seminars, hanging with middle schoolers, having a blast!
So, that’s where I’ll be. If you have a teaching or training opportunity with which I could help, don’t hesitate to hit me up!
PS – I have two registrations to Open to give away. If you are a youth worker in the Northeast, hit up the comments and tell me where you’re from and about the best youth ministry training experience you’ve ever had. I’ll randomly choose two people to receive the free registrations to Open Boston ($25 value each).
