Every year I look forward to attending Youth Specialties’ National Youth Workers Convention, especially this year since it’s relatively close by in Austin, TX. I always love the training, spiritual rejuvenation, connecting with other youth workers, and all the encouragement the convention provides. With so many changes taking place in life right now, though, I don’t know if it’ll happen this year or not. Since I’m getting married in July, it would be my first year to attend the convention as a married man with Dana, which would be the coolest thing in the world! I would LOVE to be able to share a hotel room with her and talk about all the youth ministry ideas and questions that come up during that time. Unfortunately, I’ll have to wait to see how our finances work out and what employment responsibilities she might have between now and then. It kinda depressing to think I might not be able to go this year with it being only three hours away, but who knows, maybe it’ll work out.
