Developing a conversation and space for faith based youth work managers. 

Admit it. Most of the conferences faith based youth work managers go to its just for networking. Unless it’s presented by academics.

So, anyone up for a conference just for the youth work managers in faith based organisations?

What format and teaching would you as managers like it to be? Open discussion? Sharing and open dialogue discussion? Topics on specific concerns – such as policy debate, managing people, managing churches, faith in management come to mind- but what would make for a good conference for the faith based youthwork managers?  Are there experts that could be brought in?

or learn from each other ?

what about a kind of retreat space , just to breathe, and recharge – especially often coping with the day to day spinning of excessively large amounts of plate spinning.

Who might be up for it? Is there a need for this kind of conference- just for the managers?

If not , no problem, just thought id ask around…

Comment here or contact me via email and if there’s interest we’ll get a first gathering organised. Obviously the more interest and the more experience in organising something the better.  But even a day at a church somewhere central might be a good first meeting. Just to get a ball rolling. Let me know.

  1. hi James, Not sure if it works replying to the blog posts by email but thought i’d give it a go. Love this post, and would love to see something like this happen, but i also have another idea i’d like to run past you, even though we’ve not met, i have followed your blog, and you have a stack of wisdom in here which is so insightful and enabling.

    Any chance we could grab some time together at some point?

    I am happy to come up by train and see you, although being blind seeing is not quite the right phrase maybe!!!! But that is why i am coming by train if we met, because being blind i am not allowed to drive.

    Let me know if you would be up for meeting sometime soon, and when would work for you. Andy. Andy Wilson RolltheRock Director E: M: 07907375779 O: 01423 202088 W: Twitter: rtryouthleader Skype: andy.rolltherock
