Heading to the National Youth Workers Convention tomorrow!

Topic / Training

NYWC 2007Tomorrow my wife and start our 11 hour drive to St. Louis for Youth Specialties’ National Youth Workers Convention. We’re looking forward to a wonderful time of rejuvenation, relaxation, inspiration, education and of course the exhilaration that comes from hanging out with thousands of other youth workers. This will be my sixth convention and I’m ecstatic! Of course I’ll be blogging through the whole thing, so be prepared for frequent updates. Is anyone else going?

    I'm headed there too! I am so excited about going! I am taking a critical concerns course on Thursday – The passionate Pursuit of God in the Way of Jesus – really excited about that – haven't really considered the rest of the weekend yet – but will be in the Tic Long seminar on Sunday – would love to meet you in person and shake your hand since you have become a real help to me through your e-mails and such!

    Hope your weekend is powerful!
