Speaking and Training

Tis the season to train our leaders, I guess. Because that’s what I’m spending most of my time doing lately.

I just got back from a rewarding weekend in Oskaloosa, Iowa where my dad and I did our NEW BREED training workshop together for pastors, youth workers and volunteer managers in the greater Iowa area. Great people! It was a blast spending a whole day helping these leaders think strategically about mobilizing the 21st Century Volunteer. We got some great feedback from the group; they seemed to walk away with a ton of great ideas for recruiting, managing and training volunteers.

I really enjoy training pastors and youth leaders. I get to turn around in a couple of weeks and do my CONNECT workshop at a huge Youth for Christ conference near the coast of Maryland. Then I’ll do my parenting workshop a couple weeks later at a church in South Bend, IN, and again a month later in NJ.

Here’s a peek at my speaking/training schedule so far for this year:
