Yes, times have changed. Many of the plans of man, but it's the Lord's purpose that will prevail. We didn't plan for a 2020 like what we are experiencing. 2020 has caused us to rethink everything.
It is important as we pivot in these difficult times to consider the next generation in our programming and plans. A year without Christian education is devastating. Imagine a Godless generation because of our lack of knowledge.
Perhaps they will perish for what we don't know. Yes learning technology is challenging ,but not impossible.
Navigate is about preserving the same mission, but embracing a different methodology. We have an explosive three days of practical training, empowerment, and tons of resources you will be able to apply instantly. Our Navigate workbooks are plug and play templates that will help you in every area of youth ministry.
Navigate 2020 conference is 100% online and you can learn from anywhere. My team and I can't wait to serve you!
Thorough description of each Navigate session.
About The Pivot Team Session
Opening session will focus on your pivot team for the next season. This session will focus on what kind of team is needed to lead youth during the pandemic. Do you know who's strong in technology? Do you know who is great at social media? Leadership is everything. Many youth ministries fail because of the lack of organization and good leadership. This is a season where youth ministries should consider composing a pivot team as they Navigate through uncertain times.
About Online Youth Events Session
No more boring online youth events. Zoom is our platform of choice for online youth events. This session will give you ideas on how to engage students online as well as give you helpful tools on how to avoid online burnout and fatigue. Alphaeus will also take you behind the scenes on how to execute a successful online youth event. Examples are Game Night, Youth Revival, Sunday School, Youth Groups, Youth Conference, etc.
About Digital Outreach Session
Very simple and practical session. Snapchat, instagram, Tiktok are ripe for digital outreach. Instead of knocking on doors you are knocking on the internet for souls. Do you know what platforms the next generation frequent? What about what they are texting? There is another language and culture that we should be aware exists while we are intending to reach the next generation. This session is about decoding, interpreting and the systems behind digital outreach.
About College Ministry Session
In 2019, Alphaeus and his team conducted research into the relationship between churches and college students and the result is College Ministry 1.0. This session is based on the findings from his new release and will consist of interviews, statistics and strategies. A thriving college ministry will benefit a church greatly. Over 7 million will turn 18 in 2020. How many Generation Z are active in your church?
About On Their Level Session
Imagine a world of students growing up not understanding or learning morals and the basics of life. Many times it's the teachers, preachers, and instructors standing in the way of the content and the students. What do I mean? A teacher that is not able to connect with students is like a fisherman fishing without bait.
Whether live or virtual, the message, values and training you convey should be on their level.
OTL is a training that will share practical tools and insight on how to engage the next generation. Alphaeus has invented the word ‘enter-train’ to explain the process. Every time you train, you should entertain and every time you entertain you should train. On their level is not just about connecting and engaging, it's about transformation.
About Post Pandemic Youth Ministry Session
This session will wrap up the conference. It's loaded with resources, training and information that will empower you and your team to have a thriving youth ministry during and after the pandemic. Have you thought about the next 18 months? After PPYM you will have strategies for the long term.
