The Youth Ministry Academy is a three-day event to train and equip those who love ministering to youth, both paid professional youth ministers and those who do it for heavenly rewards. The Academy provides excellent training in an intimate environment. The Academy provides learning that leads to transformation, and wants to live at the crossroads between theology and practice.

At the Youth Ministry Academy, you will not only be challenged by great speakers but have the opportunity to think through practical implications for your ministry. You can reconnect with God through worship and be encouraged by a community of folks who understand your love for teenagers.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: Including All of God's Children in Ministry
Using a person-centered approach, we will explore how youth groups can be a support for those with special needs, including the autism spectrum. The workshop will demonstrate strategies to bring youth of all abilities into the fold, and help them be an integral part of the group, as we are called to do by Scripture.
