Keynote speaker: Ken MoserKen Moser

Ever felt a talk, seminar or main meeting on a Venture fell into the 'worthy but dull' or 'engaging but lacking' category? The ministry of shaping children and young people into life-long disciples requires our teaching to be interactive, personal, enjoyable, productive, true and memorable. Sound like a tall order?

We've invited Ken Moser to navigate these challenges and provide us with principles, methods and concrete ideas that will help sharpen even the most honed Venture programme. Ken is currently an Assistant Professor of Youth Ministry in Canada, leads training conferences, has written books such as 'Creative Christian Ideas for Youth Groups' and has 25 years' experience of working in youth ministry.


We're really excited to let you know that the Ventures Conference is moving to Christ Church Leamington Spa! Please make a note of the new venue when planning your travel.
