Youth Worker On Fire Podcast

Jun 12, 2024

Youth Pastor Summit is a premier conference and training for next gen pastors, youth pastors, educators, and their teams. Youth Pastor Summit (presented by Student Leadership University) is conference designed to encourage and equip every leader. This conference includes breakout / small group sessions, labs, worship, lunch, fun activities (free day at Universal Studios Orlando we chat about in this episode), and free resources for student ministries.

Our team here at the Youth Worker On Fire Podcast have been to this conference many times, as well as, had many students attend Student Leadership University at their locations all over the world!

Caleb Turner of Factory Church (located in Concord/Charlotte, North Carolina), who we interviewed a few months ago (EP 195), went to his first Youth Pastor Summit this year (2024). In this episode, we dive into Caleb's firsthand experience at YPS Orlando, Florida and how it has enhanced his vision for student ministry.
