    Nazarene Youth International is an auxiliary organization of the Church of the Nazarene because they believe
that young people are an integral part of the Church. NYI exists to lead young people into a lifelong relationship
with Jesus Christ and to facilitate their growth as disciples for Christian service in the kingdom of God and their
integration into the Church of the Nazarene through ownership and empowerment.

    The Northwest USA Regional NYI consists of local churches and district NYI groups in Alaska, Idaho,
Washington, Oregon, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, northern Nevada and northern Utah. It exists to provide
resources and assist local churches and districts in ministry to youth and their families, to support and provide
input to the general / international level of NYI ministry, and to provide additional ministries and programs
possible through the combined effort and common fellowship of the region.

These ministries and programs shall contribute to our values:

             We   value Young People… significant in the kingdom of God.
             We   value the Bible…God’s unchanging truth for our lives.
             We   value Prayer… vital interactive communication with our heavenly father.
             We   value the Church… a global holiness community of faith, diverse in nature but one in Christ.
             We   value Worship… life-changing encounters with an intimate God.
             We   value Discipleship… a lifestyle of becoming like Christ.
             We   value Community … building relationships that help bind us together and to God.
             We   value Witness… sharing God’s love in word and deed.

All regional NYI events and programs shall have at least one or several of these objectives for which time, energy,
and money in our ministry to youth and their families are expended.

    The Northwest USA Regional NYI Council is made up of the following Ex officio members: the Regional NYI
President, Regional NYI secretary & treasurer, the District NYI Presidents of the seven districts on the region
(Alaska, Colorado, Intermountain, Northwest, Oregon Pacific, Rocky Mountain and Washington Pacific), the NNU
NYI Liaison and the Main Event Coordinator. The full council shall also include the Team NYI regional trainer, NNU
Student Body President, Bible Quizzing Director, Sports Director, and Special Events Director. The council meets
two times annually: September and prior to the Regional Main Event.

Greetings from your Northwest USA Regional Council! It is a privilege to work with the Northwest Regional NYI
Council, who has been working hard to bring a high level of quality to your Regional Main Event.

This packet contains information that will assist you in understanding Regional Main Event. Let me outline some
of the key information as well as changes for this year.

      A packet was mailed to your church containing a Main Event poster. The poster can be used in your church
       to advertise Regional Main Event.

       click on “Main Event.”

       this free dinner and time of sharing resources for Youth Ministry.

It is important that you know the information in this handbook. Our goal is to continue to provide an excellent
event for you and your students. If you have questions regarding this handbook, feel free to call your District

                                        Regional Main Event
                                 Statement of Philosophy and Purpose
    Regional Main Event is a vehicle through which talents and leadership skills of youth are developed,
encouraged, and used for Jesus Christ. The process begins in a local church setting, where youth are encouraged
in their special gifts and abilities, continues through district events such as talent festivals, athletic competition
and quizzing programs and extends to the regional event held each year at NNU. Regional Main Event is more
than an annual regional event; it’s a yearlong emphasis on talent/leadership development at every level.

   Romans 12:1 tells us that we are to, “Take your everyday, ordinary life-your sleeping, eating going-to-work,
and walking around life-and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing
you can do for him.” We must be diligent to provide opportunities for development and use of talents and abilities
that challenge youth to reach their full potential of offering their lives everyday in worship centered lifestyles.

   Personal development is an important part of Regional Main Event. Our talents are an indication of His
grace, not our own “special-ness” and are designed to help us live out our lives of worship by serving Him and
others. It is for helping to build the body of believers in our local church and community. God expects us to
develop our talents and gifts so that we become the best we can be, with His power flowing through us, so that
we can offer our lives in a true worship centered lifestyle.

    Training for leadership is another vital aspect. In preparation to live a worship centered lifestyle through
discipline, use of their talents publicly, and in working in the community of the local church, a teenager develops
leadership skills that can be channeled in a variety of ways both in the present and the future. Their presentation
may not always be great by certain standards, but what happens inside of them as they use their talents is!
Whether it’s singing, public speaking, creative arts, preaching, Bible quizzing, or team/individual sports, they
develop leadership abilities, which become a part of their worship in the church community for years to come.

   Competition is part of the Regional Main Event experience, but within a Christian understanding. When
Christians compete, they compete against what they know they can do. When we achieve our best, then we are a
winner. Competing helps us work harder than we might on our own. A Christian attitude toward competitors
should be one of companionship and gratitude, helping each other become better.

Trophies and awards provide secondary motivation to work hard; of primary importance is knowing that we
improve and others achieve more when we have participated. Since Christ is the source of all talent, we rejoice in
Him for what everyone accomplishes. Even those who fail to receive an award can rest assured that God will use
them where their unique talents can best function, rather than become bitter because someone else may have
more talent recognized in a certain area. As youth leaders, it is extremely important that we help teenagers
understand the Christian view of competition; since we cannot shield them from it in life, we must help them live
as Jesus would in the midst of it.

        Finally, participation should be validated at every level. Local churches should provide opportunities for
teens to share their talents whether in church services or local festivals. Zones and Districts should organize their
own competition days as significant times of sharing and competition, emphasizing that everyone who participates
is valued, not just those who advance to the next level. It is not just a competition to see who goes on to the
regional level. The rewards for those who participate and improve themselves are far greater than winning at the
regional level. May local and district youth be better equipped to make a difference in our world through our
year-long efforts to build leaders and share talents!




                                                                                                                    6

   University.

3. Regional Main Event is open to students enrolled in grades 7-12 at the time of the event. Students who are
   not enrolled in these grades at the time of the event but who meet all other criteria set forth in this handbook

8. To provide for maximum participation and prevent over-scheduling, individuals may enter competition in
   one(1) bracketed sports competition event, three(3) talent events, and quizzing. Students may have to choose
   between events due to scheduling conflicts. Should a student qualify for more than the stated number of
   allowed events, they must choose among them to stay within the maximum number; the next student

   conflicts.

   choose either category. Categories which do not indicate an age level are open to all youth grades seven
   through twelve. Students involved in team sports may play “up” an age level to field a team; i.e. an 8th grade
   student may play on a Senior Youth team to field that team.

   handbook. Should district rules in any category differ from the stated regional rules for that category, those
   who qualify to advance must conform to the regional rules at the regional Main Event. Should districts

                                                                                                                 7

Trisha Nelson Bio
Through my years as a Christian, I’ve felt the pull toward a closer relationship with Jesus become a steady
longing. I taught at a Christian school, was active in women’s ministries at my church, belonged to Bible studies
and had an active prayer life. Still hungering, I felt God’s invitation to silent prayer and the contemplative
Christian disciplines.

I had the opportunity to attend daily spiritual direction sessions during a five-day Sabbath retreat in Philadelphia
in 2002. Being heard and understood by someone who was trained to help me recognize God’s movements in my
life began a powerful forward movement in my spiritual journey. I prayerfully sought out a spiritual director,
with whom I met monthly. In time, I felt God nudging me to become equipped to be able to offer to others what
has been of such benefit to me.

I completed a two-year spiritual direction training program at the Kairos School of Spiritual Formation (www.on-
the-journey.org) and returned to Kairos for a third year in spiritual direction supervision. I am a member of
Spiritual Directors International. My husband and I relocated to Boise in July, 2006. We attend Boise First
Community Center.

What is Spiritual Direction?
Spiritual Direction is provided (for youth pastors/workers) at this event because we know that caring for your own
soul and taking time to pay attention to what God is doing in your life is central to ministry.

So, what is spiritual direction?
Spiritual direction is a relationship in which one person assists another in attending to the presence and call of
God in all of life. The term “spiritual director” tends to sound a bit lofty, even guru-ish, especially for those
unfamiliar with its use. We continue to use this term in Christian circles, however, because spiritual direction has
been a vital ministry in the church for hundreds of years.

The true ”director” is the Holy Spirit and an underlying assumption and basis for spiritual direction is that God
through Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit is actively drawing us to God. God is working constantly,
actively, powerfully in the very midst of our ordinary, everyday routines and life circumstances. A spiritual
director is one way to help us pay attention to what God is doing in our lives. We are encouraged as we
encourage each other to let our routine and busyness be interrupted long enough to notice God’s wooing us and to
become more deeply aware of God’s presence with us.
                                                                                                                    12
Who is spiritual direction for?
Spiritual direction is for anyone yearning for God. Sometimes this desire appears as a sense of longing for
something greater or a sense of discontent with the status quo. For others this longing is more focused, rising
from a clear understanding that they are missing a sense of God’s presence in particular parts of their lives.
Spiritual direction is normally done with individuals, but can also be helpful for couples or small groups.

How is spiritual direction different from pastoral counseling?
People usually enter a pastoral counseling relationship because something is wrong in their life. Counseling tends
to be crisis-oriented or problem-driven. Solving particular problems or handling specific crises is not the goal of
spiritual direction, though often these things are present in the conversation. It takes the long view. The
spiritual direction relationship looks for how God is working, calling, prodding, and inviting us to new ways of
being with Christ in the midst of our circumstances. It focuses on building an intimate relationship with Jesus
over a lifetime, through all the problems, crises, joys and blessings.

What does a typical spiritual direction session look like?
Direction sessions are usually one hour in length and can be held anywhere conducive to intentional conversation-
quiet office, coffee house, park bench.
The director usually does more listening than talking as both director and directee explore together what God
might be doing in the areas being discussed.

                 Youth Worker Resource Dinner / Hosted by Barefoot Training

Youth Workers are some of the most innovative, creative, and resourceful people I know! We are constantly
looking for cost effective and life impacting resources to equip, teach, and inspire us as we journey alongside
teens.

This year as we gather for Main Event we want to provide an opportunity to share resources. Barefoot Trainer,
Kenny Wade, will kick-off this time of information sharing, but most of our time will be spent hearing from you!

What books, videos, studies, freebies, websites, blogs, events, ideas, tricks, mishaps, and ingenious resources
have you encountered that have made all the difference?

Here’s your chance to resource all of us! As we partner together over a meal, get some free stuff, and share
ideas…my hope and prayer is that Jesus’ Spirit will ignite creativity and insight among us!

If you have a resource idea you want to share early or won’t be at Main Event to share, email Kenny early and
we’ll pitch your idea at the dinner!

   substitutes. A minimum of four players must be present to start. Substitutes may enter the game only during
   time-outs or in case of injury.
2. Six dodge balls will be used per court.
3. The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them “OUT”. This may be done by:
   a. Hitting an opposing player with a LIVE thrown ball below the shoulders.
   b. Catching a LIVE ball thrown by your opponent before it touches the ground.
       If you catch a LIVE ball thrown by your opponent, one player on your own team may enter in the order
       they were OUT. Enter at the end line.
   c. A LIVE ball is defined by one that has been thrown and has not touched anything, including ground/floor,
       another ball, another player, official, or other items outside of the playing field (wall, ceiling, etc).
4. During play, all players must remain within the boundary lines. Players may leave their boundaries through
   their back end line only to retrieve stray balls. They must also return through their end line. A player may not
   step on or over the center line. They may reach over to retrieve a ball.
5. The game begins by putting six dodge balls along the center line-three on one side of the center and three on
   the other side. Players start behind their end lines. The official signals the beginning of the game and both
   teams may approach the centerline to retrieve the three balls to the right of the center hash line. The ball
   cannot be thrown until it is taken behind the attack line.
6. A game will consist of 3 rounds. In each round the first team to eliminate all opposing players will be declared
   the winner. A 7 minute limit is the limitation of time per round. If neither team is eliminated by the end of
   the 7 minutes, the team with a greater number of players remaining will be declared the winner. If the
                                                                                                                  19
   numbers are the same, a 1-munute sudden death overtime period will be played with the remaining players on
   the court at the end of regulation time. The team with the best of three rounds wins that game.
7. Each team will be allowed one 30 second timeout per game. At this time and between rounds a team may
   substitute players into the game.
8. No Stalling! Players must release their available dodge balls within a reasonable time period (10 seconds).
   Players holding a ball may bat other balls away with that ball. The deflected ball is no longer in play.
9. Rules will be enforced primarily by the “honor system”. Players will be expected to rule whether or not a hit
   was legal or whether they were legally eliminated. All contests will be supervised by a court referee. The
   court referee’s responsibility will be to rule on any situation in which teams cannot agree. The court referee’s
   decision is final-no exceptions. Court referees will hold the official time.

     b. Fumbles: All fumbles are dead as soon as the ball touches the ground. The ball will be spotted for the next
          down from the point where the ball first touched the ground, if the ball lands parallel to or behind the ball
          carrier. If the ball lands in front of the ball carrier, it will be spotted from the point where the player
          fumbled the ball. (Exceptions: Fumbles that land in either end zone.)

          designated placeholder or placed on a tee not to exceed two inches. After all touchdowns, no kickoff shall
          occur. The ball shall be awarded to the team scored on at their own 15 yard line, barring any enforceable
          penalties. After safeties, the team scored on shall kickoff from their own 20 yard line, barring any
          enforceable penalties. After safeties, a kickoff or punt is allowed to restart play.

          motion.
     d. Passing Plays:
         i. A forward pass may be made from any point behind the line of scrimmage. Handing the ball forward will
             not be considered a forward pass.
        ii. Pass Interference: During a legal forward pass, contact which interferes with an eligible receiver is pass
             interference, unless it occurs when two or more eligible receivers make a simultaneous and bona fide
             attempt to reach, catch, or bat a pass. It is also pass interference if an eligible receiver is de flagged
             prior to touching the ball. In addition, if the pass interference by either player is intentional or
             unsportsmanlike, his or her team shall be penalized an additional ten yards.
6.   Scoring Plays and Touchbacks
     a. Touchdowns: A touchdown scored by a male or during a male-to-male play shall be worth six points. A
          touchdown scored in co-ed play by a female (passer, receiver, or rusher) shall be worth nine points.
     b. Conversions: An opportunity to score one (1) point from the three yard line, or two (2) points from the 10-
          Yard line shall be granted to the team scoring the touchdown.

   c. Runner: Guarding the Flag belt- Runners shall not flag guard by using their hands, shoulders, arms, or the
      ball to deny the opportunity for opponent to pull or remove the flag belt. Spinning- Spinning is allowed,

Ultimate Frisbee
   1. Initiate Play -- Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their respective end zone line.
      The defense throws ("pulls") the disc to the offense. A regulation game has seven players per team.

   2. Scoring -- Each time the offense completes a pass in the defense's end zone, the offense scores a point.
      Play is initiated after each score.

   3. Movement of the Disc -- The disc may be advanced in any direction by completing a pass to a teammate.
      Players may not run with the disc. The person with the disc ("thrower") has ten seconds to throw the disc.
      The defender guarding the thrower ("marker") counts out the stall count.

   4. Change of possession -- When a pass in not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block, interception), the
      defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense.

   5. Substitutions -- Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a score and during an injury
      timeout.

   6. Non-contact -- No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A
      foul occurs when contact is made.

   7. Fouls -- When a player initiates contact on another player a foul occurs. When a foul disrupts possession,
      the play resumes as if the possession was retained. If the player committing the foul disagrees with the
      foul call, the play is redone.

                   Regional Main Event Adult Sponsor Job Description
    Regional Main Event is a youth talent competition sponsored by the Northwest USA Region Nazarene Youth
International, on the campus of Northwest Nazarene University, yet final responsibility for the rules, policies, and
procedures of Regional Main Event belong to the NYI. And that means YOU!

    Much like a youth camp or district retreat relies on the NYI adult leadership, the success of Regional Main
Event depends on you. As district sponsors, we must all come to the weekend’s activities recognizing that we are
responsible to make it run smoothly and to address any problems that arise as we would if they happened in our
own home church. Often we attend university-sponsored events and rely on the university to make everything
work well and everyone happy. But Regional Main Event is an NYI event that just happens to be on campus. NNU
is relying on us as adult sponsors to keep our teens involved, content, and “out of trouble”. This will involve:

1. Supervision of all teen participants and spectators is the sole responsibility of the districts and local churches
   involved. While teens are on campus, please work to make sure they observe campus rules and exhibit
   appropriate Christian behavior.
2. Adult sponsors are responsible for conduct in the residence halls and hotels. They must see that they are in
   their rooms by midnight curfew, and that they are out of the rooms by 9:00 AM. Teens will not be allowed to
   loiter in their rooms during the day! Adults should check by on a regular basis to ensure that teens are out of
   the living areas. Please do not leave campus for an extended amount of time, leaving us short-handed in
   supervision.
3. Sponsors may be involved as coaches or district coordinators in competition areas, making sure that
   participants know their performance or game time, encouraging them as they compete, and being there for
   support. Sponsors may also have some specific responsibilities with the event, but cannot serve as regional
   Adult Volunteers (since these will be involved in other ways).
4. Adult sponsors should take responsibility for ALL teens at Regional Main Event, not just those from your own
   district or church. In other words, if you see something problematic being done by a teen from another
   district, please involve yourself in the correction of the situation. We are asking that you provide security and
   supervision for student participants and guests. We want this to be a pleasant experience for everyone
   involved, and know that the continual presence of adult sponsors will provide both and guidance during the
   event.
5. Many who attend will not know Jesus; others may be struggling. Be prepared to counsel, pray with, or lead
   teens to Christ at any time! Sponsors are the key! Also, be ready to counsel with teens in the “heat of
   competition”. Some will be learning for the first time how a Christian responds differently to competition than
   the world does; be a model of Christian sportsmanship! Some may be discouraged when they don’t do as well
   as they would have liked; be an encourager! Help every teen to do their best, yet feel secure in God’s love
   and in their efforts to improve themselves in their talent, no matter what the result!

ATTENTION!!! There will be a mandatory Adult Sponsor meeting on Friday in the Brandt Center.
