Encanto Youth Ministry Discussion Guide
PYWA is excited to offer this free youth group discussion guide based on the Disney movie Encanto. The author of the resource, the Rev. Dr. Krystal Leedy, is also the Director of the Youth Celebration Conference at Mo Ranch this summer, June 19-24. The theme of this year’s senior high conference is “Calling the Stars by Name” based on Isaiah 40:26 and draws on themes from Encanto.
Brian has served the youth, families, and community at Webster Groves Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, MO since 1999 and been in a paid position at Webster Groves Pres. since 2000. Adolescents, families, mental health, and faithfulness are his passions in life and he works hard to continually bring all of those elements together no matter what he is doing and looks forward to guiding PYWA to do the same. He frequently teaches workshops and speaks to groups about topics like the adolescent brain, sex and sexuality, suicide, and building a youth ministry and congregation that is not afraid to address and embrace the challenges of adolescence, parenting and being a community.
