This year we will be holding special Leader Dinners again in all our regions every weekend in August. These happen on Saturday and Sunday nights from 5-8pm. The Leader Dinners were an outstanding success last year and we want to do it one more time this year. This is open to all leaders of ministries to young people from local churches (Children, Pathfinders, Adventurers, Youth, Sabbath School). This year will again feature a free 3 course dinner but also include worship together, acknowledgements by pastors of local leaders, sharing time, and a short President’s address (by Pr Eddie Tupa’i).
Full details to come soon.Lance Boulton - NNZC Child & Youth Pastor
5:00-7:30pm at Royal Oak church. This is a special time of sharing, prayer and discussion for northern youth leaders, pastors and youth supporters. We will use this time to reflect on where our current generation of young people are at and how we can best serve them in our churches (in terms of discipleship, finding Jesus, serving the Church, sharing in our communities, impacting their world, and helping finish the Adventist work). God has called an incredible group of leaders together for the ministry to our young people and it is a great opportunity to come together to connect, surrender it all back to him, and be refreshed.
NOTE – this is not a training or worship event. There are no formal presentations but a chance to connect and pray with other youth leaders to let God set the way forward in serving our young people.Lance Boulton - NNZC Child & Youth Pastor
