    Webinar: It's Not Your Youth Group

    We all know those people, the pied-pipers of youth ministry. Heck, maybe that's you. Maybe it was your youth pastor growing up. Maybe it's the youth pastor down the street. Either way, we know them and we love them, 'cause they are children of God. But what happens to the youth group when they leave? What happens when the parents freak out? In this webinar, we'll address the toxic idea that a youth group is only as strong as it's youth leader and focus on ways to lead and grow healthy youth programming that is ultimately owned, invested in, and run by the youth, parents, volunteers, and the whole church community. 

    Hosted by Neil McKown, Director of Student Ministries, Shepherd of the Hills Presbyterian Church, Austin, TX, 

    and Rev. Shelley Donaldson, Associate Pastor for Mission and Youth, First Presbyterian Church of Stamford, CT.

    This meet up is free for PYWA members and $10 for non-members.
