Real Stories from SYMC #36

Kerensa Huffman.

“Just keep swimming.  Just keep swimming.”  Remember that little song from ‘Finding Nemo?’  Nemo’s dad (youth workers) was struggling to carry-on.  The journey – and the mission – were overbearing.  He was losing heart – and losing faith.  Enter Dory (Kerensa!!) with just the right amount of encouragement to help the sea-weary dad embrace the challenge and complete the mission.

Kerensa is the consumate encourager.  She’s always reminding us to look for praises among the prayer requests.  She wants people to know how valued they are.  And she’s great at that!!

The folks of SYMC – both the professionals and the volunteers – value YOU!  Register today and get a discounted registration – but expect a bonus of encouragement.  And while you await the conference kick-off, find Kerensa on Facebook.  (By the way- you’ll see a great photo on her timeline of some of the best youth leaders in the country who await your arrival in Louisville!)

I've been in student ministry nearly 30 years…which generally just confirms how much I still don't know. Some days I'm the pizza-eating, over-responding, teaching-on-the-fly, desperate-for-volunteers, frustrated-with-co-workers youth leader that we all are. And sometimes…I knock it out of the park. I'm everywhere on social media that you are!
