Going Deeper was a great learning experience for all who attended. The weekend, which was led by Gordon Fitch and Carlton Johnstone, gave us a chance to come together as youth leaders to go deeper into what youth ministry is all about through the interactive workshops that look into the fundamentals of youth work.
It was a real eye opener especially for us who fellowship at Grey Lynn. Being from a Pacific Island Church, things like filling out R.A.M.S forms is definitely a new concept for our youth ministry. We are a family-tied church so parents let their children attend youth nights on Fridays because the leaders are pretty much family. Going Deeper helped us see the importance of paper work even if the young people attending are family or not. The workshops have definitely helped me as a leader to develop the skills needed to be able to run and lead an effective youth ministry within our church.
I encourage other leaders to take advantage of the Going Deeper workshops available – awesome weekend, awesome workshops, awesome fellowship with awesome people and not forgetting the awesome food!
