Training & Learning

Seminars & Intensives

One of the main priorities at NYWC has always been about training and equipping youth workers.

We know that there’s always something new for us to learn, especially as the culture continues to change, and new youth workers and volunteers join the world of youth ministry. That’s why NYWC includes more than 40 seminars led by veteran youth workers, professors of youth ministry, and in-the-trenches youth workers. You’ll also find our optional 5-hour, pre-event Intensives, where you can dig deeper into a topic.

Beyond the seminars, you’ll find tons of other opportunities for training and learning as you interact with other youth workers throughout the weekend.

Theology Track

It’s in the Theology Track that youth workers have the chance to expand one another’s minds. Attend one of the theology seminars, or join in on a roundtable discussion. Listen to leaders in the youth ministry academic world and participate in the conversation. ultimately, the goal is that your theology informs how and why you do youth ministry, so dig deeper into the foundational beliefs of your ministry.
