As Iâ€™ve written before, I am immensely thankful for my friendship with Doug Fields who has taught me so much about youth ministry. One of the things I love about Doug is how he pours into the lives of youth pastors & students through his Student Leadership Conference. In fact, I can say that its largely because of SLC last summer that weâ€™ve seen such an incredible year of student leadership within our High School Ministry here at Saddleback. They heard from the best and had a great experience together and came back changed – I couldnâ€™t be more excited about signing up for another year at SLC!
Believe me, I get how difficult it is to train, equip & prep student leaders on a weekly basis. Itâ€™s no easy task. It is all about having a servantâ€™s heart first. It all starts there. Once students understand that – it provides a great framework for their involvement throughout the year in ministry.
Whether or not youâ€™ve heard about it before, I can safely say that if youâ€™ve never been to SLC before – you and your student leadership team are missing out. I canâ€™t wait to take my students back this summer, especially because I know what that means for how weâ€™ll start next school year.
Excited to be a part of Doug Fields’ Student Leadership Conference – I’ll be in 2 of the 3 locations (California and Pennsylvania as a speaker and with our student leaders – sorry Dallas, my youngest is graduating from kindergarten) and am pumped to meet you and your best and brightest student leaders, too! Going to be so cool!
