Thanks to all those this weekend who attended our first Spark* Youth Workers Conference. I'm encouraged by the many youth workers (paid and unpaid), students and speakers who engaged in the seminars and workshops. It was a great first go— and every indication is that we've landed on something worthwhile here— and at a great price point too. Our student volunteers did a superb job representing Crown and helping our guests feel at home. 220+ participants (including a couple who had travelled 7 hours from Chicago!) focused on equipping the next generation to know and share God (Generational Transference). That's cool.
More feedback later… We're debriefing and reviewing evaluation forms this week… and I have to remember to grade papers and teach classes! But for now I want to say "thank you" to all those who follow God's call to intentionally invest in the lives of young people. What a blessing you are!
