Latin American youth conference convenes in Chile

A conference for Latin American Baptist youth leaders is being held in Santiago, Chile, from June 29 to July 1.

Sponsored by the Baptist World Alliance®, the conference will focus on resource and information sharing, leadership development, and on mission. Among issues to be explored are youth in crisis, evangelism and social media, and the goals and values of youth ministry.

The BWA will use the opportunity to urge these young leaders to encourage their peers to attend the 16th Baptist Youth World Conference that is to be held in Singapore from July 17-21, 2013.

At least 30 Baptist youth leaders from several countries are expected, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Venezuela, and elsewhere.

Presenters include BWA Youth Director Emmett Dunn, Dean Miller of the Virginia Baptist Mission Board in the United States, and Dale Stairs of the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches in Canada.

The youth conference immediately precedes the BWA Annual Gathering which is being held in Santiago from July 2-7.
