Acorn’s Andy Oatridge, keynote speaker at the Youth Leaders’ Training – ‘IVK’ – 2021 conference, spurs on servants of Christ to persevere with joy.
Youth leaders (in a non-covid world) gather in their hundreds to be encouraged, taught and spurred on in their youth ministry at the Ifi Vezető Képzés – Hungary’s high quality national Youth Leaders Training conference each spring.
Having cancelled 2020’s long-awaited event due to coronavirus, it was back for 2021 in hybrid form with the title: Are you ready for joy?! The programme was put together to combine talks, workshops, mentor opportunities and local small-scale (covid-friendly) meetings…and Acorn was involved in what goes on! Andy Oatridge gave one of the keynote talks at the conference, encouraging participants, who have often come from hard ministry contexts, to persevere with joy in Christ – the One who keeps and works in every believer.
The stimulating content from experienced youth workers together with a bombardment of excellent ideas for their youth groups made this weekend a fantastic resource for all youth leaders and pastors across the country. Read more about Acorn’s involvement in IVK.
