Come join us at MVNU for our first annual Training for 10. A training event specifically priced and planned for you to bring your youth ministry leadership team!
Date: February 9th, 2013
Location: Mount Vernon Nazarene University | 800 Martinsburg Rd. | Mount Vernon, Ohio 43050
Cost: $10/person. One free registration per every 5 paid, per church. Basically, if you bring 6, you pay for 5. Bring 12, pay for 10... simple... right?!?!
Who is it for: You and Your Youth Ministry Leadership Team
This training event is priced and planned for you to bring your youth ministry leadership team (whether there's more than 10, less than 10 or exactly 10!!) for a day of interactive training!
We want you to bring your youth ministry team if possible, so start planning now! Space limited to first 120 participants.
It doesn't matter if you are all paid, all volunteer or something in between... this day will apply to everyone and any team... we may even ask some of the most experienced youth pastors attending to help lead some of the small group discussions! We've added a couple hours to the day based on feedback from past training events, so we have more time to allow you to talk through things with your youth staff.
Coming alone? No problem. We will connect you with other youth leaders flying solo to network and brainstorm together about your ministries!
