20 May 23 Attend UB Youth Summit in Florida
Bobby Culler, chairman, Youth Ministry Team
The 2011 UB Youth Summit was held May 2-5 at First UB church in Holly Hill, Fla, (near Daytona Beach). This year, 23 youth workers from across UBdom gathered for a time of relaxation and refueling as we spent some much needed time “focusing” and “refocusing” on the things that are really important.
Rev. Denny Miller, senior pastor of Emmanuel Community Church in Fort Wayne, Ind., was our keynote speaker. He shared with the group the importance of focusing on the Word of God. This proved to be a very valuable time as each of us were challenged in our preparation and our presentation of our messages and lessons.
The Summit was a beneficial time of networking with other youth leaders and being encouraged by others who are in the trenches of youth ministry. We enjoyed the beach, the golf course, and the incredibly beautiful weather, along with the opportunity to slow down and step away from the constant demands of Youth Ministry.
Mark your calendar for next year’s Summit: April 30 – May 3, 2012. It is well-worth it!
