WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:

One of the strongest gifts given to the youth ministers of our diocese was a retreat lead by Steve Case.  Steve's theology is real and incarnational - helping others find God in the here and now - in the attic, in home baked bread, on the back of a napkin at a local coffee shop.  Steve's materials speak to young people and easily adapt to differing situations.  His presence is compelling. Ignite your youth program with Steve Case.

Steve is the most amazing speaker you will ever hear PLUS he's super easy to work with.

THE SEVEN LAST WORDS OF THE CHURCH:

DEALING WITH COMPLAINTS, COMPLAINERS AND OTHER CRAZY CHURCH PEOPLE.

Proven and effective techniques for dealing with those people who seem to gather together and discuss new way to keep ministry from happening. This is an effective workshop with anyone who works in the church. Children, youth, and Church committees. Remember Jesus critics nailed him to a piece of wood.  Anything other than that...this workshop will help make it easier.  

 

 

IT SAYS THAT??

THE TOP TEN COOLEST VERSES IN THE BIBLE

An ever changing collection of the top ten coolest, disgusting, violent, downright bizarre verses in the scriptures. A favorite at youth events.  Zombies, Disembowelment, Flatulence, and all the verses that would make the average Sunday school teacher blow kool-aid out her nose.  This PG-13 workshop shows students if Hollywood ever made a movie of the Bible it would be NC-17.   SPEAKER'S NOTE:  I once taught this workshop three times in one weekend. On the third session I spotted a familiar crew of guys in the back row.  They can come to the same workshop THREE times. I asked them why and one young man said, "I just learned more in 45 minutes than I did in 15 years of Sunday school. Now I have to go home and read my Bible."

 

MYTH-UNDERSTANDING

What's Really Important In Youth Ministry

This audience participation workshop takes a look at the great lies and even greater truth of what it means to answer this call we refer to as youth ministry. It doesn't matter how long you have been doing this...someone will always ask "When are you going to be a REAL minister?"  Youth ministry IS real ministry.  It is a calling.  This workshop helps youth ministers get through the muck and mire that goes with the job and affirms their decision to answer God's call.

 

FOG MACHINES ROOF TOPS AND CEMETERIES

This workshop is a live version of the popular books THE BOOK OF UNCOMMON PRAYER volumes 1 & 2.  Youth leaders will learn to plan creative (and occasionally dangerous) worship services for youth.  It will also teach youth ministers how to create services the YOUTH can lead for the congregation. Every leader who attends will leave with a fresh new service to take home and use with their students...along with an unleashed creative spirit to keep coming up with new ideas.
