In just a couple months we will be gathering in Chicago, IL for the Youth Workers Connection. We will be sending out updates throughout the coming weeks to keep you updated and informed of what we have planned for you in Chicago. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Youth Workers Connection

Join us Saturday Jan. 25th starting at 3 pm for Round Table Discussions, Affinity Groups, or a time with God in the Prayer Studio. The Youth Ministry Network Facilitators will also be available for conversation and connection starting at 3 pm.

At 5 pm on Saturday, our hosts for the weekend, Erik Anderson and Meghan Bruggeman will kick off the 1st General Session with Matt Lundgren and the CHIC Band leading us in worship. Dr. Andrew Root will engage us in a theological dialogue.  Following the General Session, we will gather in the Rosemont Ballroom for dinner sponsored by North Park University and Seminary.

If you are in the Chicago area or arrive early you can volunteer. Check out the opportunities to help out before and during the conference here: Volunteer Opportunities
