Wow, what a year 2018 has been! We’ve had some great times at our events this year, thanks to you! I especially would like to thank all of you leaders for being so gracious and understanding with the transition of NextGen Assistants. As 2018 comes to an end we are excited for what the Lord has in store for your students at the upcoming 2019 events. This upcoming year we have some exciting new ways for registering for some of our events online. So, keep an eye out for new tutorials and step by step guides to help with the new processes.

Earlier this month we sent out a mailer full of information and resources for the 2019 year. In the mailer we have our yearly wall calendar with all our registration due dates. If you did not get one or need another we have some extras, so please give me a call. In the mailer there is information about BGMC, STL, Youth Alive, Royal Rangers, Girls Ministry, and Summer Camps.

This year we are starting a monthly online leadership conversation with top tier leaders, called Leaders Lunch Break with Brian. The Lunch break will be held every second Monday of the month from 12-1pm. The First Leaders Lunch Break with Brian will be held on January 14th our first guest speaker will be Pastor Bill Wilson. For more information on how to participate please visit the website. If you did not receive our mailer with all these wonderful resources, please let me know, and I will try to get one to you.

I look forward to being able to serve you, so you can better serve the kids and youth of Oregon. If you would like more information about any of our events you can always check out our website oregonag.org/events, and for more resources check out our hub at oregonag.org/thehub. If you have any questions or need any assistance with preparing, or registering for our events, please feel free to email me or call the office at 503-393-4411.

Thank you for all that you do for the kids and youth of Oregon!
