AMES, Iowa—During this year’s Annual Conference of the Iowa Association of Regular Baptist Churches, the association’s State Youth Committee presented a Youth Ministries Roundtable. CrossRoad Baptist Church hosted the annual conference April 1–2.
Topics in the Youth Ministries Roundtable varied, “but the heart of everyone was the same: helping teens and parents be more like Christ,” says Greg Gosnell, associate pastor of Faith Baptist Church, Mason City, Iowa. Along with the discussion, the committee shared books and sample resources with everyone who attended. Among the attendees were youth pastors, senior pastors, and laypeople.
The Roundtable “was a wonderful time of encouragement and sharing—and helpful for everyone to realize we are all in this together,” Gosnell says.
