Student Leadership Training Event
May 14, 2011
10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Live. Serve. Lead. Is designed to help serious-minded youth in your church develop their leadership abilities and to draw closer to God and connect to one another as a student ministry team. This event is intended for, but not limited to, high school sophomores and juniors who demonstrate extraordinary leadership potential.
Martha Schartner, Director of Student Ministries, First Presbyterian Church, Beaver, will be speaking on "Developing Leaders From Within". According to Martha, “the thrust of my time will be helping people catch the vision of making disciples-in other words developing teen leaders with a passion and heart for ministry that is deeply rooted in their love for Christ.”
The day’s events will include lectures and discussions as well as adventure and group activities coordinated by Geneva’s Pisgah Program (no athletic ability required). You and other pastors will also have the opportunity to meet with your student leaders to begin brainstorming ideas for practical application within your youth group.
The event is $10 per student, and this fee includes lunch and snacks, as well as lectures and initiatives. To thank you for your service to youth, you and one additional youth leader will attend free of charge.

In the past four years, on average, 90% of Geneva students are working or in grad school within six months after graduation.
