“Are you living in a way today that will help you thrive tomorrow?”
So you’ve noticed something. Your ability to lead well seems to fluctuate. Some days (and seasons) you seem to be in top shape. You have energy and enthusiasm, a clear mind and your decision making is sharp.
But on other days (and in other seasons) you’re sluggish, fuzzy or so burdened down you feel like you can’t lead anything well.
In the quieter months it’s easier to stop, pray, listen and plan, once that is done then booking venues, sourcing leaders etc. can begin. Planning also has the potential to move us from a place of being stuck to a place of freedom and growth, it keeps us intentional about ministry and the call God has placed on our lives to see ‘young people become lifelong followers of Jesus’.
We have created a planning document which you are welcome to use or adapt for your own ministry. Click here for Planning Document..
Xtend conferences are a unique opportunity for young Christians to meet other like-minded teens, and be extended in their faith, experience of God, personal gifts and skills, and character development.The supportive environment offered develops a great sense of community, and gives teens the opportunity to be involved through speaking, worship leading, sharing their testimonies etc.
The South Island conference has a strong focus on leadership training, and for young people to attend, they need to be nominated by either their Senior Pastor or Youth Pastor as someone with the capacity for leadership development.
