Sunday I got back from an event I’d been really excited about for the past few months. The Middle School Ministry Campference is a conference for junior high youth workers, but it takes place at a camp. I love this from their website:
What’s great about Campference is that you get to enjoy all of the facilities and beauty of a great camp without being in charge. We’ve scheduled plenty of free time so you can use the zip line, guilt free.
This was the second year of the Campference hosted by The Youth Cartel, and it was a great time of seminars, large group sessions, worship and the best part–hanging out with other youth workers who LOVE junior high students! That was seriously the best part… talking to other people who share a passion for junior high students and ministering to them.
I was blown away the first night at dinner by how much I had in common with someone just because they work with junior highers. I guess it just goes to show that it takes a special breed of human to work with students that age, and we’re all so similar!
If you’re interested, you can check out tweets from the Campference here.
Marko has already announced that there will be another MSM Campference next year, so if you’re a junior high youth worker, don’t miss it!
