we'll have in Florence the YfC
Course for Youth-Workers hosted by
the Chiesa Cristiana Biblica.
Liz (YfC staff in Tuscany) & Stefano,
will lead the final series of seminars on
Practical ministering to teenagers.
Tomorrow we'll interact on how to have a ministry towards
young people solidly grounded in the Word of God.
Liz will lead the first seminar engaging students
with some practical teaching skills on
how to plan and run a Rock Solid Bible Study and
how to plan and run a My Space Club.
Stefano will lead two seminars in the morning
and one in the afternoon.
With the first seminar: Mobilize & Creativity,
we'll challenge students to prepare a series of Bible studies for a summer camp like Exch@nge that will use a movie
to engage teens coming from non-Christian background.
We'll use as example the old movie Juno, which is full of themes that will challenge the teens world-view.
The second morning seminar will deal firstly with one to one discipleship.
We'll be challenged by God's example in Ezekiel 34:15-16 to see the individual sheep in the flock.
Secondly we'll engage with prayer and how to develop a biblical prayer life
for youth leaders that embody and encourage a prayer life for teenagers!
In the afternoon seminar,
Stefano will explore
the topic of partnership
firstly in exploring how
to start a school ministry and how to prepare
Secondly we'll see how to engage with local social workers
and foster homes for teenagers run by social services.
After we'll have Licia Saillen,
a Christian educationalist and family counsellor,
who will lead first a seminar for Youth Leaders engaging with
the topic of sexuality and pornography.
Later Licia will lead a seminar for parents
engaging with the topic of how to talk with teenage children
about sexuality from a Christian perspective.
