2020 National Gathering

Also, in partnership with NEXT Church, PYWA is excited to be able to bring our fellow youth-workers a much-deserved discount for this year’s conference in Cincinnati, OH. Register by October 30th using the discount code: YouthLeader50, and get $50 off your early-bird registration!

We will be there to give away swag, sign folx up for membership, and hang out. We are also sponsoring workshops and hosting gatherings of our own and in partnership with Montreat! Here’s a look at what we’ll be doing at NEXT this year:

The NEXT Generation of Youth
 (workshop) with Shelley Donaldson (PYWA Board Co-Moderator), Tully Fletcher (PYWA Board Member), and Amy Kim Kyremes-Parks (PYWA Member) – PYWA is offering this workshop as part of a larger conversation in youth ministry about generational changes, shifts, and ways that it changes ministry as we know it. (Monday afternoon)

 (workshop) with Liz Perraud and Jason Santos. This workshop is sponsored by PYWA. (Tuesday morning)
