Fatherless Generation – Larry Acosta

Beloved Urban Youth Workers and Kingdom Leaders,

This month we are excited to bring you our new and expanded UYWI e-Newsletter with more than just links to coming events. For January 2010 our theme is Reaching the Fatherless Generation. Working with urban youth you get to see the effects of what happens in real time to families with an absent or disconnected dad. I know this very well as my “father wound” has fueled my pain and brokenness as a person and leader. But on the positive side, it’s what drives my passion to work with urban youth workers across the US because you are a voice of hope and healing for youth who are deeply pained by their own father wound.

– Check out my video on Reaching the Fatherless Generation. We will be uploading Part 2 next week.
– Join us for a live conversation and Q&A on Growing and Leading through your “Father Wound” on January 19th.

Look for more and more resources each month and I can’t wait to see you at a RELOAD conference near you see uywi.org for upcoming dates!
And for those of you on the West Coast – our conference is BACK! I’ll see you May (13) 14-15 for this amazing gathering of next generation urban leaders!

Believing in You!
Larry Acosta

    Excellent stuff! I’m doing the same things in Las Vegas with Hispanic Youth. I’d like to connect with you when you have time to talk (702) 287-1859.

    We are on the same page with a “fatherless generation”. Here’s my Feb. article I wrote the latter end of January: http://eepurl.com/g6Uu
