The best youth ministries are unique and a reflection of their context. But, as culture changes and youth workers experiment with new approaches and priorities, there’s a small patch of common ground.
It’s not a common program or teaching plan, but a set of values that seem to be shared by ministries that are finding their way in our current reality.
SCMYP is pleased to partner with Mark Oestreicher (Marko) to offer this wonderful training opportunity for youth workers on Monday, April 24. The training will take place on the campus of Spartanburg Methodist College in the Ballard Center (behind Judd Hall – click here for a campus map) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Mark Oestreicher (Marko) is a veteran youth worker and founding partner in The Youth Cartel, providing resources, training and coaching for church youth workers. The author of dozens of books, including “Youth Ministry 3.0,” “Hopecasting” and “Leading Without Power: 9 Paths to Non-Coercive Ministry Leadership,” Marko is a sought after speaker, writer and consultant. He lives in San Diego with his wife, Jeannie, and two college-age kids, Liesl and Max. Marko’s blog: whyismarko.com.
