Registration for FUEL 2017 (Thurs-Sat, Feb. 2-4) is due by mid-January, so I need everyone from the district to register with me by January 10th! (Info about FUEL, including a schedule, is available HERE.) The district will cover the registration and meal costs for the conference itself, so you are only responsible to sort out your transport to and from the conference. Please fill out your registration details on this Google Doc. I’m so excited for us to take a big team again this year!!! So get anyone involved in youth ministry in your context to sign up!!!!!
Dear Pastors and Youth Leaders of Indiana South,
I can’t tell you how excited I am to begin journeying with all of you in the role of District Youth President. It’s truly an honor to serve epic people across our district who serve students for the glory of God! I am already impressed with the heart and caliber of our leaders across Indiana South as I’ve interacted with many of you at rEVOLution16 and had initial meetings with our Youth Executive Board and Youth Cabinet. I am thrilled with the eternal impact this district wide youth leadership team is having in the lives of young people through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I’m so excited about FUEL this coming year!!! This epic conference is for those who serve in youth ministry in any capacity and will be held in the Indianapolis area February 2-4, 2017. The theme is “Soul Care”–and I am stoked for what these days could mean for the spiritual health and vitality of our district youth leadership, and therefore the spiritual health and vitality of our youth ministries!! Please mark these dates and plan for your youth leadership team to be there! More information is to come regarding logistics, but please mark your calendars now!
Also, don’t forget to keep the space clear in you annual calendar for rEVOLution17 (June 19-23) and family camp (July 16-23)—to be held at Orleans campground. I am excited to announce that Rev. Zach Coffin will be our speaker at teen camp in 2017. Zach is a long-time personal friend and youth ministry colleague who has been recently brought into the role of Director of Next Gen Ministries for the North American Wesleyan Church. He has a strong heart for Jesus and for students, and he is an anointed preacher! I would encourage your churches to start thinking about fundraisers to send teens to camp as early as the first of the year! The more funds that are raised, the more likelihood of being able to send youth from the community to camp who don’t yet know Christ. Please be praying for our District Youth Cabinet as we plan for this year’s camps!
Don’t hesitate to contact me any time you could use a listening ear, an intercessor, or even a cheer leader. ???? It is my privilege to invest in your lives in any way I can as you invest in the lives of our teens across Indiana South.
Here’s to the journey ahead!
Rev. Amber Livermore
District Youth President, IN South
