Youth and Children’s Ministry Conference was at Christ the King Lutheran Church, September 26-27. Rev. Dr. Terry Dittmer was the guest speaker, speaking on the highlights of his book, “A Youth Ministry Manifesto,” LCMS Youth Ministries.
Attendees included included volunteers, called youth workers, and several pastors. This was the first time in many years that an independent youth workers conference was held.
The Mid-South District Youth Board, which was created in March of 2015, will continue to plan/host this conference each fall around the same time and location as the district pastor’s conference.
LCEF was generous to host hospitality Saturday evening to allow time for fellowship and networking.
