How do we disciple young people in the church? How can we help them discover their calling in a cluttered world? In this episode of the Ohio Conference Cast podcast, Glen Guyton, the executive director of Mennonite Church USA, considers these questions and reflects on his years in youth ministry. He notes that we often don’t realize the long-term effects of our interactions with youth. “When you’re in the middle of it, you don’t see it,” he says, adding that even many years later he hears from young people he worked with while in youth ministry.
Glen Guyton will be the speaker at the Ohio Conference Youth Worker Retreat at Camp Luz Oct. 15-17. The theme of the retreat will be Equipped for the Journey: The who, what and how for youth leaders.
Conference Minister Dick Barrett and Coordinator of Volunteers Alysa Short are the guest hosts for this episode of the Ohio Conference Cast.
