The Building Blocks of Urban Youth Ministry
taught by Tommy Carrington, Urban Training Network
Kids today are flipping out silently. They are dealing with more problems of abuse that they can define. This workshop will begin with an overview of abuse in its various forms, and share how and when youth workers should intervene. This workshop will also give you skills to help students navigate the pain abuse leaves in its path. The goal is to help you learn how to help kids move from resting in the numbness of abuse to finding a greater life in the Kingdom.

Angry Ministry: Helping Students Who Show Up More Angry Than Happy Every Week
taught by Kingsley Grant, Helping Families Improve
Youth ministry involves the whole family. No matter how much time students spend with a youth leader, at the end of the day they still go home! When we listen to family situations through only the mouths of our youth it’s easy to view parents as obstacles rather than partners in their child’s growth. If Momma’s not home, Daddy’s not connected, one sibling parents another sibling, and Grandma can’t “hear” you, then what do you do? How can you help youth live and grow in their families instead of just surviving? Through the use of discussion, video and activities this workshop will help you talk to parents, get them involved, and deal with intense situations. You will gain practical tools in walking out life with youth and their families.

Developing Core Values of a Youth Worker
taught by Tommy Carrington, Urban Training Network
You’ve heard it said that “Values are caught, not taught.” Is there a set of core values that every urban youth worker should live through and live out? If so, what are they and how should we integrate them into our life, ministry and youth ministry? This session will help you to find a foundational theology on which to build values for ministry that will help you stand strong against the tests and adversities of life.

Feeding Father Hunger: Understanding And Ministering To The Fatherless Generation
taught by Kingsley Grant, Helping Families Improve
Oftentimes both kids and adults are unaware of the lifelong effects that an absent father has in the life of a child.  The emotional response of the fatherless can be linked to poverty, high school dropout rates, crime, drug use, and teenage pregnancy.  The fatherless live a lifestyle living with a father they don’t see, while filling the empty space with painful outburst and pseudo-comfort realities.  This Workshop will provide you insights for helping youth to discover their identity, pinpoint side effects that are gripping them from growth, and discover practical mentoring approaches to free their souls and not block their blessings.

Junior High Adult Leader Track
Call of Duty: Building Assets Every Student Needs
taught by Todd Breiner, Christ Fellowship
This track will teach how to build sustainable assets for Junior High Students and interface with realities without being controlled by them. As a youth worker, our relational time with students is minimal; therefore, it is important for us to focus on the right things. Kingdom ministry to students shifts our efforts to play it forward by teaching them to spend less time trying to control problems and troubles…in an exchange to visit their capabilities in strength and potential. Students must learn the value in not being a joystick to the challenges in their lives.

Teen Track: A Facebook Without Love (2-Part)
taught by Max Percy, Ekklesia Miami & Solomon Blatch, WDMEC
In years past, sex, alcohol, and drugs were a few of the leading influencers that “helped” teens feel as if they were gaining ground relationally with other students.  When these were coupled with media and music, it seemed like adults were always 10 steps away from a youth’s daily reality.  In today’s world, teens can connect visually without ever having to confront who they really are!  In fact, through social media avenues, teens can bypass life – yet still feel alive and in the mix!  This session will remind students of who they really are, and how loving themselves first will help them lead their lives into a personal book they can face forever.
