6:30 – 8:30
For all paid and volunteer youth workers and your spouse! (feel free to bring your entire adult youth worker team)
As fellow youth workers ourselves we know firsthand the challenges you face. That is why we would be honored to have you as our guest for this year’s Youth Worker Dinner. This night is all about you. A night to encourage you in your ministry to teenagers. A night to encourage you in your walk with Christ. We know you’ve sacrificed a lot to do what you do and we know you carry additional burdens for the teenagers God has entrusted to you. So on this night we invite you to sit back, enjoy a great meal, relax, fellowship with other likeminded people, worship and be encouraged as you pursue this call to reach this generation of teenagers for Christ.
