In October I had the chance to teach the Camps and Retreats class for our Certificate program at the Seminary. It’s a less formal level youth ministry training program that we have on Saturday mornings.

For the last week of class, I had the students organize a retreat. They did all the planning, and it turned out pretty well. The speakers were Randy Smith and Maykel Valdez, who were already coming in for some meetings that we were having to expand youth ministry training in Latin America. Their topics were general leadership and also how to connect what happens at camps and retreats to what happens in everyday ministry.

We had a great time. You can see the pictures on Flickr by clicking here.
