Regroup Schedule
|      9:00 am
Doors Open and Continental Breakfast

|      9:30 am
Student Ministry Game Experience
You will want to come early and not miss a minute of fellowship and networking.  Experience a few new games that you will want to use right away with your youth ministry! 
|      9:45 am
Sticky Key 1 - Shepherd the Sheep
If students are going to stick with their faith beyond their teen years, they need student leaders that know how to shepherd them.  Discover keys to lead students spiritually and be someone they see as a mentor for life. 
|      11:00 am
Sticky Key 2 - Bridge the Generations
Despite the age segregation that exists in our churches and broader culture, each young person benefits when surrounded by a team of five adults. We call this the new 5:1 ratio.   Research demonstrates that parents are the #1 influencers in their teen's spiritual growth.  We help student leaders develop new ways to partner with parents to empower them to nurture faith in their families and help build bridges between the generations.
|      12:00 pm
Lunch and Special Music by DJ Mr E
Your team will feel appreciated with a great meal and some great music.  Visit tables of local non-profit youth ministries.  Find new ministry partners or become aware of the vast youth and family resources available so you can refer students to places that offer a variety of help/assistance. 
|      12:55 pm
Sticky Key 3 - Breathe the Gospel
Many young people see faith like a jacket: something they can put on or take off based on their behavior or circumstance. We seek to help students develop a more robust understanding of the gospel, one that integrates faith into all aspects of life.
|      1:55 pm
Sticky Key 4 - Create Safe Conversations
Doubt is not toxic to faith; silence is. Young people want conversations in response to their hardest questions, not just answers. We offer tools and training for these life-changing discussions that can deepen the faith of everyone involved.
|      2:55 pm
Session 5 - Concert of Prayer 
We sow seeds and water them, ultimately: God causes the growth.  There are over 500,000 middle and high school students in South Florida.  Many of us dream of the day when every student will hear the gospel multiple times before graduating high school.  For this vision to come to pass, it will take a move of God that results in leaders and students and parents united in prayer! 
|      3:30 pm
Dismissed to Enjoy Coral Gables and Miami
This is a great time to spend some time with your team.  Explore Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, or downtown Miami.  Teamwork makes the dream work.  Great teams spend time together apart from the work!
Conference Location
 Hosted at Christ Journey Church, Coral Gables, FL
The whole conference is working experience of collaboration and strategizing.  Everyone sits around a table and there is more interaction than lectures.  This year we will have one location and you will have an amazing opportunity to network with non-profit and student ministries from all over South Florida!
South Florida Student Ministries United! 
This conference is possible because of multiple ministries collaborating and working together.  Through the generosity of Devon Urban Leadership and the time invested by several key local student ministry leaders, we are able to offer this conference for the price of lunch.  Our desire is that each youth worker will be honored and appreciated by a conference that normally would cost over $50 per person. 
News & Updates
Come back regularly for video updates and links to articles so that you can get a head start on the learning process.  Often paradigm shifts take a while to process but can have life-long impact.  The theme of "Sticky Faith" is based on the research of Fuller Youth Institute and the books by the same name.
