2017 UB Youth Workers Summit
Date: April 24-28, 2017
Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn
Address: 2560 N. Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach, FL 32118
This is an annual event of encouragement and training for persons in youth ministry. It is available for the lead youth ministry workers (fulltime, part-time, or volunteer) in every United Brethren church. About 25 youth persons usually attend.
The Summit is a great time of networking with other youth leaders and being encouraged by others who are in the trenches of youth ministry. They enjoy the beach, the golf course, and incredibly beautiful weather, along with the chance to slow down and step away from the constant demands of youth ministry.
You are responsible for:
- Transportation to and from Daytona
- Meals that are not covered
- Hotel incidentals
This year our keynote speakers are as follows:
- Leading for Lasting Impact. Dr. Sherilyn Emberton, president of Huntington University, will talk about preparing students for college.
- Leading for World Impact. David Kline, associate director of Global Ministries, will give practical help for short term mission trips.
- Leadership Direction in our Denomination. Bishop Todd Fetters will address dreams and vision for the United Brethren in Christ.
- Leading for the Long Haul. Bobby Culler, chairman of the Youth Task Force, will talk about leaving a lasting legacy.
If you hold a UB ministerial license, by attending this summit, you will earn 20 contact hours, which satisfies your annual requirement.
