Teen Leadership Training

 

In our increasingly pluralistic world, it is becoming ever harder for teens to know how to witness their faith in Christ to their friends and classmates. Designed by the LCMS Youth Ministry Office and connected to the LCMS Witness & Outreach Ministry, Every One His Witness provides teens with a rich understanding of how to put their faith in practical action, sharing the faith with people in their everyday lives.

FAQ's

Who Can Attend? Youth who will be in high school during the 2019-2020 school year are able to attend.

 

What If A Member Of Our Group Has Special Medical Needs? If anyone in your group has special medical needs, we ask that you advise us in your registration materials, or call one of the committee members prior to the gathering so we can make proper arrangements.

 

When Should We Arrive? Registration check-in will begin at 4:00pm on Friday, June 14, 2019. No check-ins will be accepted prior to 4:00pm. Any groups coming earlier than Friday afternoon will need to find additional lodging off site for Thursday night. Groups will have time to check in, settle into campus housing, and get dinner off campus during the open registration time between 4:00 and 8:00pm when the Opening Devotion begins.

 

What Should Our Youth Pack?

  • Bible

  • Clothes for 2 days: socks, underwear, jacket or sweatshirt (for evenings or in case of rain), shorts or long pants, t-shirt, and shoes.

  • General toiletries: deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc. & sunscreen

  • Do not bring: CD players, IPODS, MP3 players, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or weapons (including pocket knives).

*Make sure ALL medication is placed in zip-lock bag with specific instructions. Leave all prescription medication in original container.

 

How Can Youth Apply to Join a Regional Leadership Team? Included in this registration packet there is an application that youth can use if they are interested in being selected to a regional leadership team. There will be a time on Saturday when youth will be asked to turn in those forms.  They will later be interviewed by our team and a final set of teams will be selected.
