In the spring of 1997 my Youth Pastor took me to a conference at Kamloops Alliance Church. It was a weekend workshop for leadership students who wanted to learn how to share their faith with their friends. It was called “Eternal CPR” and was run my a rep from Sonlife Ministries. That weekend transformed my life and was the start of a journey that would lead to me being a Pastor. However more importantly that weekend empowered me to understand that I didn’t have to wait till I was an adult. That as a grade 10 student, I had a role to play in my own world.
One of the fundamental beliefs I have in ministry is that “students are the best equipped to reach students” that belief was planted by Sonlife in 1997. Twenty-one years laters later it is the driving force behind my ministry and I believe is fundamental to the future of Youth Ministry. For more on that check out Students are BEST equipped blog from a few weeks back.
Recently I discovered that Sonlife is giving away all those old resources including “Eternal CPR” now called Peer to Peer… FOR FREE. All you need to do is go to their store and download the files.
