We have an exciting announcement about the conference! In addition to our Conference Speaker (Rev. Melanie Wallschlaeger, Director of Evangelical Mission for SWWA Synod) we will be welcoming Edwin Rourk, Region 1 Online Community Director--also know as The Guy Behind Soul Cafe (a name we may have just given him...it's not official, but we like it).
March 4-7, 2012 at Cannon Beach Conference Center, Oregon

Our congregation has what we'd imagine is a fairly common problem, and I'd be eager to garner any advice those of you reading this might have. We revived a moribund youth program in 2008, creating a 10 hr/week position that was filled for 2 years by, well, me. I was fortunate to be in a position where I didn't need full-time employment and had time to devote to the task of developing a youth program.
