YMC07 #8 - Youth Ministry Conference 07

On the whole, Youthworks run a very good conference. The cross of Christ was preached and there are many encouraging things going on around Sydney evangelical youth ministries.

There was some great content from the Bible on leadership. I would have been interested in hearing something of some reflections on secular leadership and the lessons we can learn from business organisations. There were some specific isolated comments from one speaker who is not a fan of transplanting business principles into the church. I disagree with him, but there wasn't really a forum to talk it through.

The workshops are sometimes not as well prepared and presented as the talks. This is disappointing. I think for the conference to keep growing the quality of the workshops must continue to improve.

Having said that, I plan on continuing to attend. For me the best part of the conference is the breaks. I enjoy catching up with new and old friends to talk about youth ministry. It's a great encouragement and worth the cost of the conference alone.

Did you go to the conference? Would love to hear your comments...
