BCMB has invited Ron Friesen to lead this workshop for Youth Pastors. Ron Friesen is currently the director of the Youth Work Degree at Columbia Bible College (16 years). He also has served recently as Youth Pastor at Northview Community Church. Ron has been involved in youth ministry for over 40 years in churches in Nebraska, Saskatchewan and BC. Ron is passionate about the next generation of youth workers believing that whether students anticipate youth ministry as a vocation or as a volunteer, they understand the importance of youth ministry and the difference they can make in a teenager’s life.
