I went because LinXus was invited to speak at a training conference that the Presbytery was holding for youth and church leaders. I wasn't able to stay for the whole thing but it was really interesting to be in a room with other youth leaders and talk about the challenges that we are facing right now and most importantly, try and come up with new ways on how to tackle them through combined experience.
The Rev. Dr. Roberta Clare was the moderator/speaker and she is just incredible. I'd love to be able to sit in on her lectures at VST.
I got to meet some new church leaders and talk about some issues I've seen. I know that this is not going to be a one-off conference and I'm really hoping to be able to attend next year!
