The Summit - A Youth Ministry Event

First, I have beard envy. Marko's beard is phenomenal in the above video.

The Summit is the latest venture from the guys at The Youth Cartel. Imagine a youth ministry version of TED:

A wide variety of remarkable speakers, all sharing stories and ideas around a central theme. Dozens of different ideas, plenty of minds and hearts gathering to dream together, and the Holy Spirit in the midst of it all, stirring up the pot. It's not just traditional youth ministry speakers; there are artists and CEOs and missions leaders alongside youth ministry voices.

Plus, it's incredibly affordable: $129 for group rate; $149 for individual.

It's in Atlanta this November 9-10, so it's kinda far for a guy in Arizona or on the west coast. But if you're interested in dreaming about the future of youth ministry and gathering with all sorts of awesome minds in the youth ministry world, grab a group of other youth workers and make it happen!

This isn't a paid endorsement. I don't even know if I'll be able to attend myself! But I love what Adam and Marko are doing, I love the freshness of this event, and I'd love to be in that room of dreamers come November.

Check out The Summit here. What do you think?


  1. Youth ministry budgets are often slim, but that doesn’t mean your youth group fun has to be. Some events are great for building relationships, earning trust, and meeting.
