This weekend I’m in not-so-sunny Orlando, Florida. We are here hosting our first ever YS Palooza. It’s super fun doing something for the first time! (Er, was that an innuendo?)
The joy of launching a new event is that the whole thing is kind of an experiment. [insert evil laugh] So far, four hours into it, it’s feeling great!
I ask that you pray with me for this weekend as we train and encourage hundreds of youth workers from all over Florida. Also, pray that we learn quickly from this thing! We love the idea of a two-day youth ministry training event that is kind of a mash-up between YS One Day and the National Youth Workers Convention. At the same time, we need to figure out what parts of what we’ve created works, what doesn’t work, and what needs to be tweaked.
