Hey ministry friends.  Are you going to be at Simply Youth Ministry Conference this weekend?  If so, I just got my official teaching and panel discussion schedule from the conference queen bee.  Here’s the scoop on me if you wanna run into me intentionally.  I’d love to see you.

If not, and you happen to be the praying sort…. here’s when you could spend some time praying for me and I’d be ever grateful.
