On Saturday afternoon, our last class was held for Warm Bodies & Willing Hearts.  We had a good wrap-up of the previous 9 sessions and all that was missing was the band playing "Pomp and Circumstance."

The idea for these sessions came a little over a year ago, to provide an opportunity for people wanting to know more about youth ministry and all of the joys and stresses that come with it.  We had a great turn out for the 9 session course.  Our topics ranged from studying Scripture to basic evangelism and discipleship.  For the last session looked at Current Issues in Youth Ministry, which covered a broad spectrum of issues — from drugs & alcohol, sex and the occult.

In the new year, I won’t be repeating the same program, instead we’ll have quarterly workshops or mini-conferences throughout 2006.  Stay turned for the written version of the WBWH course, to be released when the book is finished.
