AZ Youth Leaders' Summit
January 10     .     11, 2019 (all day)

The best years of youth ministry are not behind us (although we all looked pretty rad in our "glory days"). The best is yet to come! But are you prepared to lead Gen Z to follow Jesus in a post-everything world?
Our focus this year will be to intentionally help you understand Gen Z and how we can most effectively work together to reach this generation. We’re bringing in Terry Parkman as our special guest speaker from River Valley Church in Minneapolis, MN. With over 16 years of experience in working with the Next Generation, nothing drives him more than helping this generation discover their purpose, developing them as leaders, and empowering them to step out into the plan of God for their lives.
The Arizona Youth Leaders' Summit is designed for the youth pastor and youth leader in training for inspiration, practical coaching, and encouragement from youth ministry experts as you connect with youth leaders around the state. Join us and bring your team on January 10-11 for a balanced mix of fun, collaboration, and an encounter with God tailored just for Youth Ministry Leaders.
Bring your team, and get ready for a good mix of fun, games, and an encounter with God tailored just for you!
