YouthCon-Leaders Without Limits

YouthCon-Leaders Without Limits

Aug 30, 2016

By Pastor Steve Osborn

This was a year of trying something new for the high school-aged youth.

Following last year’s decision that the Pre-Conference youth retreat was no longer practical, plans were made to hold sessions for the youth concurrent to the General Conference sessions. At the request of the youth, YouthCon 2016 was focused on providing them with leadership training with a theme of “Leaders Without Limits.” The theme was developed around 2 Peter 1:5-8 and the “building blocks” God uses to establish the character of those who recognize that leading is not something you do but rather who you are. “The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:8, NLT).

Worship, Bible studies, hands-on leadership training tracks, meetings with SDB Executives, and participation with the Business and Interest Committees of the General Conference were intermingled with fun activities to help develop the 34 attendees into leaders not just of tomorrow, but also of today. We look forward to fine tuning the program to make next year’s YouthCon even better.
