Reflecting back on our time at Simply Youth Ministry Conference 2014 in Columbus has become one of my favorite daily pastimes.
For instance, I find myself often wondering things like, ‘What ever happened to Jake in the elevator?’ or ‘How are those two people who got engaged during Saturday night pre-session doing?’ So many crazy, awesome, beautiful, and inspiring things occurred that it’s hard to remember it all –but one thing I know for sure: transformation happened.
God used speakers, singers, workshop leaders, hallway meet-ups, and elevator conversations to transform me. I want to thank you all for playing a part in that. I was truly blessed by SYMC, and it continues to be an instrumental and vital part of my current story.
I pray that you had a similar experience –that God showed up and did something big, and that the Spirit of God is continuing to write the story of Christ in you! Below is the audio from my talk, “New Storylines for Youth Ministry” from the last general session of SYMC.

I leave you with the following verse: “I continually remember before our God and Father, your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love and your endurance inspired by our hope in Jesus Christ.” (1 Thess. 1:3)
