This workshop will present a gospel-centered and Bible-grounded approach to youth ministry, with an intent on answering a very specific question: How do we prepare students to embrace an enduring Christian faith that stands strong in the midst of difficult circumstances of life? Cameron Cole (youth director, Cathedral Church of the Advent) will explore the challenge of preparing students for suffering. David Plant (pastor for student ministries, Redeemer Presbyterian) will guide in preparing students for engagement with secular culture. Jon Nielson (college pastor, College Church in Wheaton) will speak on preparing students for lifelong love and service in the local church.
