This Saturday, June 18th is our third and final training event for the spring/summer. It will be located at Hope Lutheran Church in Selden, Long Island at 11am. The church address is 46 Dare Road, Selden, Long Island, NY 11784. Our first two training events have been great. Youth workers, pastors, and parents from congregations all around our synod have gathered to look at the research that has been done on youth and religion as well as discuss ideas on how to plan events for your youth groups, create a timeline, recruit volunteers, and get your congregation invested in the lives of young people.
These free trainings are open to all youth ministry leaders, staff, lay volunteers, and Pastors who work with young people in congregations around the Metro New York Synod. This is an equipping opportunity for your congregation from the ELCA! Our next training event will be in the fall and we will be learning tools to dig deeper into our programs and how to prepare groups for event ministry. We will again be offering the training in 3 locations around our synod so stay tuned for dates and times!
