new to ministry
Workshop Experience

Hosted at:Grand Hall in Hudgens Art Center

If your first couple years in ministry was a pandemic, we've created a whole experience just for you...

This day will help you champion the values of kids and youth ministry throughout your church, recruit and retain volunteers who show up consistently, re-engage parents and guardians to be intentional at home, and so much more.

We’ll also connect you to a group of leaders who are doing what you do every week so you can continue the learning experience all year long. When you register for the New to Ministry workshop, you’ll be invited into a unique digital network where you can keep encouraging each other and learning together.

So if you’re NEW to youth ministry, kids ministry, next gen ministry, your church, or even Orange, we want to meet you and spend a year learning with you. Let’s get started at OC 22!
