Youth Leader Summit
February 14-16, 2022
“The Youth Leader Summit is the perfect moment of rest, connection, and renewal I needed after the holidays. It was great to kick off the year with colleagues explaining how to think and love deeply in youth ministry.”
A weekend retreat where you can come together to worship and learn leadership skills while doing fun recreational activities!
The Youth Leader Summit seeks to be a supportive and informative gathering for all who work with young people in the church—youth directors, parents, pastors, educators and/or advisors are all welcome! Together, we will spend three days and two nights digging into some of the current issues facing youth ministry while also sharing joys, concerns and best practices. There will also be time for individual and group worship, play, rest and relaxation!
Working with and serving students in middle and high school, plus their parents, in our communities of faith requires no small amount of creativity, vision, persistence and joyful patience. In fact, youth ministry demands all the energy, intelligence, imagination and love that we can muster.
We want to honor our partnership in ministry with you by offering this annual event. Mo-Ranch wants to pour some love and strength back into you! We believe you need and deserve some dedicated time away with your colleagues to recharge and regroup.
Speaker: Kevin Sheehan
Our speaker for this year’s Youth Leader Summit is Kevin Sheehan, Director of Student Ministries at Peachtree Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, GA. Kevin has over 16 years of full-time Student Ministry experience at Peachtree Pres, First Pres Orlando, and First Pres Greenville. Kevin and his wife Lauren have 3 children – Hudson (10), Parker (7), and Mason (5) as well as 2 elderly 12-year-old dogs – Charlie the Cockapoo and Nene the Chihuahua. With a love for all things adventure and fun along with a passion for sharing The Good News of Jesus, God continues to use Kevin to impact students and families wherever he goes. Kevin is excited to be with us at YLS this year and looks forward to the mutual encouragement of us gathering together as a group of youth leaders.
