I got an email today reminding me about the upcoming National Youth Workers Conference sponsored by Youth Specialties, and it made me a little sad because I won't be attending this year.
It's not a financial decision, or a schedule conflict. It's simply the career shift that happened in my life this summer. No longer a youth pastor, I can't find any way to justify attending this time around.
And that's just too bad, because it's tough to find an event for associate/worship/adult ministries people that is as much fun as a YS conference. Oh well. Life goes on, eh?
