Purpose: Helping youth leaders strengthen connections with one another and resources, which ultimately will help them with strengthening connections with youth, God, and the church. 

Symposium Speaker: Rev. Dr. Heather Lear, Teaching and Research Fellow, The Foundation for Evangelism. Rev. Lear is an ordained elder in the North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church and served local churches in Raleigh-Durham and Rocky Mount areas. In addition to working with the FFE, Heather serves as a representative of the UMC at Evangelism Connections, an ecumenical group that focuses on evangelism, and she is active as a teacher and leader in her local church.

Registration fee: $10

Bible theme: Luke 14:28-30 (NIV)

 “But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it?  Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at you.  They would say, ‘There’s the person who started that building and couldn’t afford to finish it!’"
