The gift for day 7 of Youth Ministry Cafe’s 12 Days of Christmas comes for the amazing people over at Youth Specialties. The peeps over at Youth Specialties always put on a great conference for youth workers with their National Youth Workers Convention. I would recommend this conference to anyone in youth ministry that is able to go. You can check out the information on it here:http://nywc.com . They also show how much they really do appreciate and support youth leaders by giving away the media (Logo, backgrounds, videos,etc) from the conferences theme for FREE. I used 2012’s theme “Wonder” just recently at this past year’s winter retreat for our youth group. 2013’s theme was “Onward” and I am excited to make a teaching series based on this theme. They are only available in their website at certain times, and right now they have ALL of their themes available all the way back to 2002!

They are great resources for theme ideas for a teaching series, retreats, or camps. Plus the price is within any youth ministry’s budget.
