What’s new for SYMC 2012? [video]

Simply Youth Ministry ConferenceI had the privilege to talk with Kami Gilmour, the lady who has worked hard on the Simply Youth Ministry Conference almost every day for the past 6 years. It’s because of her hard work and dedication to youth workers that thousands of youth workers are blessed, encouraged, and trained every year at the conference.

I’ve been a fan of the conference ever since I first attended a couple years ago and, knowing many of the people at Simply Youth Ministry, I know this conference totally flows from their hearts for youth workers.

Below is a brief conversation I had with Kami about three things:

  1. What is SYMC?
  2. What makes SYMC unique?
  3. What’s new for SYMC 2012?

The conference is March 2-5, 2012, at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, KY. Register before October 31, 2011, to get the Early Bird Rate! The conference sold out the past two years, so if you want to join the experience this year, registering early is your best bet for guaranteeing a spot. Get more info on the SYMC website.

QUESTION: Are you going to SYMC 2012? What are you looking forward to most at the conference?

    I hope to go this year! I am totally jazzed by the speakers and the worship leaders. The only think is I wish I could be in 5 places at once with all the good sessions that they will be having. Especially those by Kara Powell, Mark DeVries, and Chap Clark. And Francis Chan is the main session speaker, sign me up! I'm also stoked that Tim Timmons is going to be playing there too.

    Have we thought of having a Life in Student Ministry get-together there?

    (Again, I don't even know if I am able to go. But, I'm praying I get to.)

    • An LISM get together, eh? That would be interesting. I'm not even sure what that would look like. Do you?

      I usually wander around, so if you can go, make sure you find me and say HI! I'd love to chat if you're around.

      I don't know what the conference center / hotel look like, but it might just be a taking over of a coffee shop or lounge somewhere.

  • I'm going!

    • Sweet! I'll look forward to meeting you then! :)

    The thing that I'm looking forward to the most when I attend the SYMC conference is to just be able to "Breathe". It's such a nurturing environment and they really care deeply about youth workers!
