The Teen Staff Program will be held on-site at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott.
Teens, ages 13 – 18, are invited to participate in the Teen Staff Program (TSP), which is a mix of working essential Convention jobs, attending entertaining and educational workshops, and participating in fun activities. Teens will be placed on teams and will be encouraged to fellowship with their teammates and to build leadership and teamwork skills throughout the Convention. Over the two days of the Convention, teams will rotate through a series of workshops, activities, and service jobs. The TSP is a two-day commitment in which teens are expected to conduct themselves in a courteous manner. For the benefit of the TSP as a whole, teens who are disrespectful and/or uncooperative will be excused from the program.
Mandatory Staff Meeting & Orientation (Friday)
Peter Lambert, Teen Staff director, will cover the guidelines of the program, give an overview of the service jobs to be performed, and impart the vision for teamwork, leadership, and a job well done.
Mandatory Staff Meeting & Feedback (Saturday)
Teen staff will be given the opportunity to share from the previous day’s experiences, ask questions, give feedback, and regroup.
If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, you’ll love our activities, which will get your blood pumping and your creative juices flowing. Your team will work together throughout the Convention to get things done, and the activities will provide a fun break and time to build camaraderie among team members.
You can look forward to a great time, but the Teen Staff program isn’t just fun and games. You’ll also have a chance to learn about leadership and responsibility firsthand as you confront real challenges and help fill essential staff roles that are vital to the success of the Convention.
Teens should not miss out on TSP workshops! Travis and Suzanne Zimmerman, co-founders of Speak My Word Ministries, will be at the Convention this year specifically to share with teens their passion for Christ. Travis’ electric, dynamic, and heartfelt style is contagious and will ignite in teens a fresh and renewed heart for Jesus. For additional information, go to speakmyword.org.
