Wow, I was just scrolling through the list of workshops at the Youth Specialties' National Youth Workers Convention in Anaheim next month, and I realized something quite scary.
I might not attend a single workshop by Doug Fields this year.
He's doing the First Two Years in Ministry topic in Critical Concerns. I'm going to a different CC.
He's doing Small Groups from Start to Finish. Did that last year in Sacramento.
He's doing Beginner's Guide to PDYM. Been to its equivalent, I'm guessing, at the Purpose-Driven Church conference back in the spring.
He's doing Crafting Messages That Matter. Quite certain I went to that two years ago in Anaheim.
He's doing Marriage, Ministry and Family Q&A. Likely gonna skip that one, unless there's an arranged dating element to it.
Of course, I might still sneak into one of the sessions for a chance to win some free stuff from the gang at SYM. How can you say no to a chance at free stuff?
