How can I connect with FYI at Youth Specialties’ NYWC in San Diego this week?

Brad M. Griffin | Oct 3, 2013

We're glad you asked! The FYI team will be around Youth Specialties’ National Youth Workers Convention in San Diego and would love to say howdy. Here are a few ways to connect with us:


  • The Fuller Booth: Several Fuller Seminary and FYI team members will be at the Fuller booth throughout the weekend during exhibit hall hours. Stop by for information about Fuller academic programs, Sticky Faith Cohorts, the new Launch Kit or whatever you're curious about.
  • Sticky Faith Author Meet-Up: Kara, Chap, Brad, and Cheryl will be at the Fuller booth Saturday from 1:30-2:15pm and would love to meet you! Please drop by to say hi.
  • Sticky Faith Cohort Prospective Churches: If you're considering joining a Sticky Faith Cohort next year, meet up with Haley and me on Friday from 5:00—5:45pm at the FYI booth to learn more!

Seminars, Intensives, and Panels

  • Sticky Faith Intensive: Kara and I will be teaching this learning lab on Thursday and Friday (additional registration fee required) in Royal Palm 5. It's a great way to take a 6-hour dive into Sticky Faith!
  • Sticky Faith Seminar: Kara will be leading a Sticky Faith seminar on Saturday from 4-5:15pm in Pacific Salon 3.
  • Service that Sticks Seminar: I’ll be teaching this new seminar on short-term missions and service with long-term impact. Saturday 2:30-3:45pm in Pacific Salon 1.
  • Short-Term Missions Theology Panel: With Kara on Sunday from 11:00-12:15 in the Tiki Pavilion (doesn’t that sound like a great place to talk theology?)
  • Seminars with Chap Clark: Chap will do an Idea Lab on Saturday from 3:30-3:45 on “How to Respond to the 3 Stages of Adolescence” in the Atlas Foyer. He’ll be on a theology panel called “The ‘We’ Gospel: Youth Ministries and the Church” on Saturday 4:00-5:15pm in the Tiki Pavilion and a 10:00-11:00pm Theology Café along with Steve Argue in the Tiki Pavilion. On Sunday Chap will lead a seminar entitled “Keeping the Fire Alive: Maintaining a Fresh Heart and Growing Mind in Youth Ministry” in Royal Palm 1 and 2.
  • Seminar with Cheryl Crawford: “Sticky Faith: A Theological Inquiry” Saturday from 1:45-3:00pm in Pacific Salon 1.

Picking up a copy of the Sticky Faith Launch Kit

This is exciting: In addition to our other Sticky Faith resources, the YS Store will be selling the all-new Sticky Faith Launch Kit at a special discount for conference attendees. Be one of the first humans alive to get your hands on this resource! We’ll also be giving one away at the FYI booth on Saturday at 2:00pm, so be sure to drop by the booth before then to enter the raffle!

Whether you catch us one of these ways, stop us in the hall, or join one of the big room or family room sessions Kara will help facilitate, we hope to see you around NYWC this weekend!
