I am honored to be doing two breakout sessions at Lifeway’s Etch Conference for family ministry leaders this October. I have been so impressed with Jana Magruder  and Jeffrey Reed . They and their team have an amazing passion for Family ministry leaders and have put together a conference with an amazing set of speakers that I can’t wait to hear from myself.

Honored to be speaking at Lifeway’s ETCH family ministry conference. Really looking forward to learning, growing, and connecting. If you are looking for a conference to attend as a kids or youth pastor I hope you consider ETCH. Really love the new direction the LifeWay family ministry team is going. From the keynotes to the breakouts they going out of their way to make the gospel the main event. For that I am grateful. I will be doing two breakouts for the 2016 conference.

  • Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way – This breakout is geared to anyone who leads at any level. It will focus on the reality that to be a great leader you must be a great follower. That in order to disciple others you must first be a radical disciple of Christ. That who you follow is ultimately more important than who you lead.
  • Why Theology Matters in Family Ministry – This breakout I will make the case that we are all theologians the question is not whether we think about God it’s are our thoughts about God true? We will also talk about how what we believe does and should impact how we lead the kids and students God has entrusted in our care.

If you are coming let me know I would love to connect at some point during the conference.

I am honored to be presenting again at Group’s Kidmin Conference. I would love for you to join me. I will be speaking about Gospel Centered Ministry to kids.

Gospel-Centered Ministry: IDEAS

Sam Luce

Session 1: Communicating Truth to Today’s Kids

Session 2: What the Gospel Demands

Explore what kids need to know, why good theology matters, and practical tools to communicate to kids in any size group—from large group to small groups to one-on-one. Dive deep into creating a better understanding that the gospel is for us and the parents we serve. The goal of the gospel in our lives and ministry is to paint a picture of Jesus that is irresistibly beautiful not as simply useful.

I love Goup’s conference. Of all the conferences out there they are by far the most effective at intentionally creating opportunities for those attending to connect. I hope that while you are there you track me down. I would love to hear what God is doing in your church.
