Regional Youth & Family Ministry
Youth Educators Retreat - Oct 6 - 7 in La Quinta
From Angie Keyes, Regional Youth & Teen Ministry Events Director
Hello wonderful Ministers, Youth Ministry Directors, and Youth Ministry Volunteers!

I am thrilled to announce that our Youth Educators Conference for 2019 will be held at the beautiful Embassy Suites Hotel & Spa in La Quinta, California--the same hotel where the Regional Conference is being held.

We will begin our conference on Sunday, October 6th at 2:00 pm and close the conference on Monday at 4:00 pm, just in time for those who might want to stay on for the wider conference.

This will be a wonderful time for connection and a great chance to share ideas and learn how to best serve our youth programs together. We will be looking at what works, what doesn't and how we work together as a team to create the best opportunities to connect with our Unity youth.

Prices for one night:
$190 per person in a shared hotel room with 2 queen beds.
$255 per person who would prefer their own room.
$370 for couples sharing a room with one King Sized bed.
We are blessed this year to have the wonderful Ty and Linda Hatfield leading two workshops. Ty and Linda are co-founders of "Parenting from the Heart," and authors of the book, ParentShift, a book that offers a new approach to raising confident, healthy, whole human beings, from toddler to teen. Ty and Linda will support us in learning how to best support the children and teens who attend our Sunday classes. We will learn tools for connecting on a deeper level as well and tools for understanding the needs of the youth we serve. I cannot wait to attend their workshops!
