Special fall conference set for high school students, youth leaders

Challenging student leaders to gain and sustain leadership skills is the focus of a special conference at BBC next month.

The Growing Leaders Conference is open to high school students and youth leaders. It runs Thursday-Saturday, November 11-13 at the Clarks Summit, PA, campus.

Carrying the theme "Do Not Feed the Sharks!," students will learn how to identify the "sharks" of life that cripple, thrash, and destroy leadership and positive influence, as well as learn tactics to combat against them.

Inside the event
The Growing Leaders Conference has encouraged students and youth leaders since its founding in 1998, cultivating and improving leadership abilities.

"We love helping young students develop their leadership skills and watching God turn them into key influencers at their school," said Matt Pollock, the conference founder and BBC's Dean of Students.

Learning how to protect leadership integrity through identifying and eliminating those things that can tear down and crush positive influence will be among the takeaways for those who attend.

The conference's keynote speaker is Andy Giessman, Lead Pastor at New Life Baptist Church in Scranton, PA. He will lead the charge in a "shark hunt," enabling students to lead more effectively.
