NEXT conference 2014 – QUICK LOOK 1

I'm getting eager for Feb 8 to roll around. The NEXT conference is going to be a great 1 day event. Here's the first quick look at some of the people who are going to be there:


TERRY LINHART –  Terry is a leading national youth ministry strategist, author, editor and teacher. Terry will be leading a workshop titled "2020 Youth Ministry: Focusing on Future Cross-Cultural Effectiveness". Terry will discuss the cultural changes taking place in our communities and world and the impact they will have on effective youth ministry. Loaded with practical ideas and helps, this session will prepare participants for youth ministry in the year 2020 and beyond. (I worked with Terry way back in the early 90's with Youth for Christ in Indiana.)


STEVE GOOLD - Steve is a drummer with Owl City, GoFish, and Sara Bareilles. He is passionate about using music to glorify God in worship. Steve is going to lead a very practical workshop on playing drums in a worship context. Anyone interested in NEXT waves in worship will want to attend this workshop.


JILL FOX - Jill, the Young Adults and Creative Arts Pastor at Wooddale Church, will lead a workshop on helping teenagers transition into college with a vibrant faith intact ~ How to help youth follow God after Highschool.
