Youth Ministry Networks: We are better when we are working together! Check out these local and and national networking opportunities.
LOCAL NETWORKS All adults who work with youth are invited and encouraged to attend youth workers network meetings! Network meetings are typically informal gatherings for mutual support, networking, learning and resourcing for ministry. Expect laughter, inspiration, new ideas and holy conversation. We are better when we do ministry together!
If it is your first time, it is helpful to contact the coordinator listed below to make sure the network group is meeting that month.

Extravaganza 2021 Feb. 5-6, 2021: On-Line Event Feb. 4-6, 2021: On -Site Event Extravaganza 2021 will explore God’s call to “Hold Loosely” and to trust in the one who comes to create, to redeem and to sustain. This is more important now than ever, as we live and do ministry in a time of pandemic, of racial injustice and unrest, of social division and political turmoil.
The conversation and learning at #ext21 will center around five questions:
How do we help those we work with navigate the grief of losing “normal?” How do we navigate that same grief for ourselves?
How do we care for ourselves in the midst of accompanying others in their pain?
