Developing sustainable work with young people: London

21 May 2011 - 10:00am - 4:00pm

A unique one day Master Class for Youth Pastors and Church Youth Leaders

Faithaction would like to invite you to join the Youth Pastors and Leaders of Churches across London to a masterclass. The theme is building your performance – by making fuller use of Volunteers, Statutory Youth agencies and Practitioners and tapping into financial resources.

The masterclass is highly interactive in nature. It is facilitated by Yemisi Onigbinde, Chief Executive of Faithaction , who will ensure that you have plenty of opportunity to discuss issues individually, as well as with the group as a whole.
