No Money, No Problems
We all feel the burden of being responsible stewards with what our churches entrust us, but when our small or struggling churches aren’t able to offer much financial support, it’s our privilege to get creative. Financial restraints can seem trying but can also refocus and give a drive that’ll ignite our youth ministries and churches.

Trading Spaces: Creating or Refreshing Spaces for Your Ministry
We all look at our Youth Group rooms after a few years and wonder...what can we do with this space? How can we make it comfortable for the teens, while still being effective for a class setting, but still feeling like a place the teens want to hang out in, while not making the Building Committee throw a fit??? Come hear some ideas of creative ways to use the spaces we have for our Youth Groups, or how you can refresh the space you have without needing big remodeling budget.

Grieving with Students
Are you tired, is ministry “piling up” on you? Have you ever noticed that when you walk with someone through tragedy and adversity it effects you as well? Helping someone through grief and tragedy sticks to everyone envolved. What happens when you have helped several people over a few years span? Have those experiences compile and effected your ability to minister to others. Why do you feel guilty about this? In this class we will openly discuss what long term effects grief, guilt, and tragic experiences have on you, your family as caregivers. Wither the grief was yours, someone else's, or someone near you, grief sticks. This class will teach ministers what “complied grief” is, how to ministry through it and the tools you need to keep strong in ministry.
