Webinar August 16, 2017
If you are a youth minister, you know the important challenge of keeping in touch with your youth. From announcements, to meeting times, to checking in for prayer – youth ministers need a way to reach the teens they serve.

This webinar describes overall strategies for communicating, for example: when and how to include parents and families in communication. We also discuss specific tools and platforms, for example: group texts, and a program called Band.

The slides are available as a Google presentation: Webinar Slides for Staying in Touch with Youth
