Youth Ministry Forum

Saturday we had our first Youth Ministry Forum at the Seminary. It was a first for many things.

I think it was the first time the format was used for a youth ministry event (at least at our Seminary). We tried to make it very interactive and participatory.

We also transmitted live on the Internet (using Ustream), including the members of the chat in the discussion. We had about as many people participating via the internet as we had in the auditorium.

There were people from Juarez, Oaxaca, Monterrey and all over Mexico watching what was happening. I never heard if there was anyone from any other countries watching the forum. But overall, it was a good discussion.

Here are some pictures we took of the event.

Youth Ministry Forum

December 3 we’ll be having our first ever Youth Ministry Forum at the Mexican Baptist Theological Seminary.

Kind Words

I skyped into the board meeting of Youth Ministry International in order to give a little report on what is happening in Latin America, and I received such an encouragement from David Adams, the director of the Center for Youth Ministry at Southern Seminary in Kentucky. Check the video to hear what he said.

His words were just what I needed to hear, and they reminded me of Proverbs 25:11 – “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.”

Lessons for Youth Month

The Youth Department of the Mexican Baptist Convention approached our Center for Youth Ministry asking for help to plan a series of Bible studies for “youth month”, which will take place in January of 2012.

Training Trainers

Randy Smith from Youth Ministry International came to Mexico last weekend to meet with various Seminaries to talk about a new Master’s program we are starting to train youth ministry professors. These professors will then start youth ministry programs at their Seminaries.

Despite horrible traffic, the meetings went well. If all goes well we will begin the program sometime next year, and at the end of the program there will be at least 4 youth ministry programs at Seminaries throughout Mexico.

Here are some pictures we took of the meetings.

Youth Ministry Forum in December


This December 3, we will be hosting the first ever Youth Ministry Forum at the Mexican Baptist Theological Seminary.

The idea is to help the local church dialogue about the issues facing us as we seek to interact with young people and reach their culture. Today we had a meeting to focus on the topic and help us plan the event so that it will benefit those who attend.

Please be in prayer for this event. I hope it leads to many good discussions on how we should go about reaching and discipling young people in Mexico.

Camps and Retreats Video

Like I mentioned in the previous post, I taught a Camps and Retreats class in October. This video is a little about what we did during the event.
