The Center for Youth Ministries had the recent pleasure of hosting Youth Emphasis Week. Annually, this week is a time to focus University attention on the importance of youth ministries. The theme for 2011 was “Speak Truth, Live Truth.” During the week, Alumni returned to campus to pour into students through a series of sessions held throughout the day from Monday through Wednesday. Speakers included Dr. Troy Temple, Dr. Randy Smith, Bill Kagey, T.Jay Williams, Scott Price, Gary Moritz, Paul Halsey, Perry Tankard, Jillian Zavacky, Laura Blankenship, Derik Idol, and Dr. Dave Adams. They shared lessons learned from their professional experiences in Youth Ministries, including topics from Contentment to Restoration, and were gracious to answer questions for students. A few alumni even came to participate as attendees. The CYM faculty had a great time reconnecting in the classroom and over meals with our honored guests.

The finale for Youth Emphasis Week was Ministry Chapel held on Friday and hosted by the Center for Youth Ministries. The morning consisted of praise and worship music from a group led by CYM alumni and student worker, Josh Coldren. The Executive Director of the CYM, Dr. Vandegriff, welcomed the audience and made several announcements, including advertising the new specialization: Adventure Leadership and Outdoor Ministries. Each year, the CYM gives to Founder’s Awards to exemplary male and female youth ministries students. This year, the recipients were Shannon Kiser and Ashley James. The CYM is also privileged to select and honor an Alumnus of the Year. This year, this award was given to Bill Kagey, who accepted his award just before speaking in Ministry Chapel. The time was one of worship and encouragement and a great finish to a rejuvenating week.
