Last night we had our first networking event among youth workers in the Metro New York Synod. It was a great opportunity to get together with some other youth workers and ask real questions like — “Have you ever tried this VBS program?”, “How do you handle Chapel services with your preschool?” and “What did you think of the last National Youth Gathering?”
We really got a chance to talk about the things we would like to see in the synod. We talked about the value of events that are a few hours rather than an entire day. We also talked about being able to work with other churches in our area on events — how it can help the leaders not burn out after an hour and can relieve stress from the person in charge.
We also set a date for the next time: September 27th at 6:00pm. This time Julie Hagen will be hosting (Email her to RSVP and get directions.) We hope you’ll join us!
In the meantime, what are some things that you would like to see in the synod?
