I am very excited about the fact that I with some of the youth from RETRO Youth Ministries at our church are attending Youth Convention this year in Austin, Tx. It has been a few years since I have attended one and am very stoked now as a youth pastor from our church to be able to take a group of them with me! I know that they are truly excited as well to leave out of town away from mom and dad or guardians, but most importantly I am praying for their spiritual well being. I am praying that God will and am trusting that God will do something great in their lives so that when they are to come back, they could be a difference and put God first in their lives.
For anyone from RETRO reading this, I hope that you have a great time and see that we can really have some great times together as part of our youth group. We are not exclusive and neither should our love for God be! I love you all and pray that one day we will be ale to sit back and at about how awesome youth convention was!
