A program to target area youth designed for fellowship, encouragement and fun will take place next week. As a part of New Generation Ministries, next Sunday’s youth conference is one of the core programs designed to combat juvenile delinquency and enhance quality of life. The organization promotes a complementary enrichment program designed to assist parents, churches and public schools. New Generation Ministries’ four areas of emphasis include: • Personal Development principles from the biblical and life experience paradigms that will help students understand their value to God, their family and community, emphasizing strategies they can employ to make a positive difference as productive contributors to society. • Life Skills that will help participants understand and develop personal and marketable skills that will allow them to obtain success in their personal, social and business relationships. • Financial and Business Literacy that exposes participants to basic financial principles and entrepreneurial ideas that lead to sustaining wealth. • Community Service and Civic Responsibility that will teach participants the intrinsic goodness and fulfillment that is associated with service to others. In July of 2007, New Generation Ministries hosted its first Summer Youth Conference modeled for students in grades 7-10. Presentations were offered to the students that focused on the ministries’ four areas of emphasis. The program will see its second year next week as speakers from across the county gather for the purpose of enriching the children’s lives with opportunities to help prepare them for the future. From dentists to teachers to law enforcement, the four-day Youth Conference will kick off with a Fatherhood Banquet Sunday at 5:30 p.m. This year, the program will serve students in grades 6-11. Over the next three days, breakfast will be served as enrichment academy sessions get lined up to take place throughout the day. This year’s theme is “Living Large” and that’s just what the founder of New Generation Ministries, Rev. Russell Morrow, hopes the participants will learn form the Summer Break Youth Conference. The event will take place on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin in the Interfaith Student Center on Lovelace Avenue. Registration is $25 and includes conference meals, events and banquet tickets. For more information on the conference or scholarships, contact Morrow at 731-514-4128.
