On September 19, 2020, St. Mary’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg hosted a seminar of the ELCIR Children & Youth Department, called “Don’t Let Yourself Dry Out.” The event gathered servants of children & youth ministries from different Church of Ingria congregations.
The main topic was preventing a burnout in your ministry. Missionary Pastor Leif Camp shared his advice on overcoming spiritual fatigue. C&Y Dept Instructor Yelena Tatti organized master class “Using Watermarks to Tell Bible Stories.” The participants had a chance to pray for each other, sing hymns together, and have informal fellowship during a meal.
We’d like to wish youth ministers God’s richest blessings, strength and joy, in order to share their faith with others!
