This week I’m planning on focusing on Student Leadership. This summer Youth Specialities is joining with us to create an additional Student Leadership Conference. We’ve always had one in Southern CA (July 6-8 this summer), but this summer we’re also having one in Philadelphia July 11-13.

I hope you’ll consider bringing one or some of your key and potential student leaders to this event. It really is life-changing.

Here’s just one story:

“One of the best parts of being a youth pastor is having a front row seat to life change. The type of life change that is only possible through the gospel of Jesus Christ. The type of life change that displays the resurrection power of Jesus Christ in all it’s glory. The type of life change that takes someone dead and makes them ALIVE.

The video below contains Evan’s story. It’s a story of life-change. And although Jesus will always get the glory for orchestrating this story, I want to thank Doug and the entire Student Leadership team for being the catalyst God used to change the trajectory of his life. The time at the Student Leadership Conference last summer impacted eternity. Thanks for the great seat!”
