Armed for Adulting 101

Workshop Description: Youth ministry is FUN and MORE FUN! Adulting is HARD and BORING! Wait, what?  Join us for some practical, and still fun, ideas on how to ensure our students have the foundation they need to thrive as adults. 

Adulting 101 morphs into what your students need and partners with parents and community members to allow you the assurance your students are equipped for adulthood, from car-care to health-care and skepticism to grace.  Learn how to create a low-cost, intergenerational experience that ensures our students have the faith foundation and the core life-skills for life as an adult, regardless of their family or faith context.
