Please join us for the Youth Workers Summit on Saturday, August 20 from 10 AM to 2 PM at the ABC Ohio Region Office (136 N Galway Drive, Granville, OH 43023). Please RSVP Leslie Hoskinson or call (740) 587-0804. The goal of the summit will be to establish a fresh vision for our Region-wide Student Ministry and to find a new, annual American Baptist Youth Conference event. For those who may not know, Dare2Share will no longer bring a youth conference to the state of Ohio. After nine years of a fantastic partnership with Dare2Share ministries, we are sad to see them go. With their departure, we must consider new options and brainstorm new ways to bring our students together. Please plan now to attend! For more information, please contact Rev. Mark Click or call (513) 737-8779.
