Featured Workshops

Interactive, featured workshops will be live at the Bronx venue and simulcast to the Manhattan and New Jersey venues.

• “Student-Led Student Ministry: Pipe Dream or Possible?”

It’s trendy for youth ministers to say, “Youth ministry is not about ministering to youth, but about empowering youth to minister,” but what does youth-led youth ministry actually look like? Experience youth ministry by young people as NYC students discuss recent student-led ministry models including God Belongs in My City, Kickin’ It Old Skool, Generation Xcel, and World Vision’s Youth Empowerment Project.

Youth Ministry Beyond the Walls: Overcoming Injustices and Rebuilding Communities”

“I the Lord love justice” (Isaiah 61:8). How then can youth ministries lead the struggle to overcome injustices such as poverty, crime, institutionalization, and educational inequity that conspire everyday against urban youth and erode urban communities? What role can youth ministries play in restoring the shalom of our cities by advocating for and manifesting Biblical justice in the communities beyond our church walls?


UPDATE (5/17/10): The RELOAD 1.2.3 Speaker List by venue is now available here.

  • [101] Reaching High-Risk Youth
  • [101]  The First Two Years of Urban Youth Ministry (2-Part)

  • [401]  Youth-Adult Partnerships:  Mobilizing Your Youth as Agents of Change (2-Part)
  • [301] Mission Critical: Reaching a Generation One School at a Time (LIVE AT ALL 3 VENUES!)

Adults promise children that if they stay in school they will be equipped to succeed in life, but we have failed to make good on that promise for generations — with high school graduation rates in some cities hovering at or below 30%. Come explore how urban youth ministries are transforming public education within a single generation of students by activating congregations, adopting schools, and becoming answers to prayer.
