Review for Urban Youth Workers Institute, Santa Ana, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I believe that UYWI is the best urban youth worker's training in the country. I have even brought non-urban youth workers to UYWI events and it has been incredibly relevant since the topics discussed at every level of training have been relevant to youth in the city or in the suburbs. A non-exhaustive list of topics are: fatherlessness, drug addiction, how to make leaders, how to do bible studies, summer planning, personal growth, staying healthy, partnerships, incarnational ministry, letting the Holy Spirit lead, etc. I have been to an UYWI event for 10 years now and they have not skipped the beat; in fact, they seem to create the beat that youth workers need to be bobbing their heads to since what they focus on always seems to be the heart of God for that specific year / region / city. Between RELOAD, THE WELL, and the National UYWI event, there is a production of high quality people, seminars, webinars, MP3 recordings and a highlight of relevant books that I should read. Without UYWI, I know I would not be as equipped to lead as I am now.
