Late in August the newly formed youth cabinet came together in Bakersfield, Ca to meet for the first time and do some planning.
The cabinet worked hard and demonstrated advanced leadership skills! While trying to agree on text and graphics for a district youth t-shirt, I observed (the seven youth present) demonstrate an “old time” Brethren approach that included open discussion, kind reflection and finally 100% consensus! Very impressive. It was a joy to witness. Register for conference to order a t-shirt!
During our time together the cabinet also planned all the events at district conference, 2011 and established a Facebook account.
Check it out: Pacific Southwest District Youth.
Plans have been made to meet again early in the new year to plan a district wide, Spring Fling!
If it is anything like what they planned for District Conference I am sure it will be something to look forward to!
