        WELCOME LETTER FROM OUR
           PRESIDING BISHOP

We greet you in Divine love.

It is indeed a blessing to see how God is taking the Youth Division of
the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International to a new
level as we embrace another year of the Glory! I want to commend
Overseer Christopher Harris for handling this assignment with a spirit of
excellence. You have unselfishly yielded your gifts and talents to help
carrying out the vision and God will reward you for your faithfulness.
I know that you could not complete the task without the dedicated youth pastors and the executive board
members, thank you all for your continued support.

It is important that we expose our young people to the things of God and assist them in reaching their
destiny. Our young people are important and we must love them, embrace them and most of all teach
them that holiness is still right.

I believe the best is yet to come!

Changing a Generation,




Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr.
International Presiding Bishop

        WELCOME LETTER FROM
           OVERSEER HARRIS
Greetings and Salutations!


Lady Carmen & I welcome you to the 2009 International Conference.
Last year‟s 2008 conference, The Ultimate Upgrade, proved to be quite an
experience. Each year we strive to arrange a conference that will be
a launching pad Into the destinies and greatness that God has for all of us.
Never settle to just attend the conference and leave the same. Make the
decision that you will not leave Atlanta the same way that you arrived. To
the contrary, you will leave hearing the instruction and wisdom of God,
learning from others, and spending time in God‟s presence. This is what this year‟s conference is all
about. You have UNLIMITED ACCESS to EVERYTHING that God has. WOW! This is an amazing reality, that
your obedience to God‟s call brings a wide range of His power, presence, and results. We look forward to
having you in all of the general sessions and the classes. God has allowed us to have a great line-up of
speakers, guest artists, and other special guests that will minister this week. I am really excited even
about all of our awesome teachers and the classes that will take place. I encourage you to spend some
time in prayer for them as God directs them.

I want to take this time as well to extend a huge appreciation and THANK YOU to our Tiers of Leadership,
our International Children & Youth Council, Regional and State Youth Directors, and really, the greatest
group of youth leaders and ministry workers in the world – that‟s you! To all of our individual churches
and ministries from far and near, thank you for your commitment to the Kingdom.
This is going to be an awesome time of sharing and just the beginning of great relationships and
friendships, new lessons learned, and power received. I look forward to seeing you around Atlanta and at
the conference. You will be Blessed and Inspired!
To every young person that has committed to serving God with no holds barred --- Thank you for being a
part of the Joel 2 prophecy – We ARE a CHANGED Generation!




Overseer Christopher J. Harris, I
International General Overseer of Children/Youth




                                                                  Page 2

H
First Steps!
                       ello Full Gospel children, youth, and youth ministry workers. We‟re all family and we look
                       forward to connecting this year in Atlanta, Georgia! Last year was an amazing conference and
                       has been an amazing year. In 2007, we Expanded Minds, in the 2008 International
                       Conference, we moved to the Ultimate Upgrade, and this year, 2009, we have UNLIMITED
ACCESS! This year‟s International Conference, June 24-26, in the ATL is sure to leave an impression on you like
never before. Our parent body is experiencing MORE OF THE GLORY and that same power, anointing, and influence
will impact our lives forever! No one will ever be the same.




                                 Please take a couple of minutes to read through this handbook as it will
answer many of the questions you may have. As always, if you have any further questions, please call us at
336.294.2628. See you at and around the conference!

There must be a spirit of excellence and order in God‟s House and in doing God‟s Work, at all times. The
Bible admonishes us to train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it
(Prov. 22:6-KJV). This command is to parents, as well, to the Body of Christ. A child is one who has not fully
matured physically, emotionally, or spiritually. We must follow the divine order of God. God has given us
charge over the youth, entrusting them into our hands. This information will provide guidelines for those who
will assist in monitoring the activities of our youth as we travel to the International Conference.




7 Conference Objectives:
Each year our conference objectives drive our planning. Our objectives for children (Ages 5-11) and
youth (Ages 12-17) are to:
1) To help each young person become aware of God as revealed in Jesus Christ;
2) To stimulate and facilitate spiritual growth in our youth through biblical teaching and preaching;
3) To help youth respond to Christ in a personal commitment to faith;
4) To guide youth to witness about their personal faith;
5) To help youth experience worship in a private and corporate setting;
6) To help youth grow in self-acceptance and life purpose; and
7) To help youth understand and commit themselves to a Christian perspective of mortality.

I would encourage you to share these objectives and even allow them to direct your planning, but
more importantly, your FOLLOW-UP for the conference.




                                                                   3

When you receive this guide:
Two Months Prior to Attending the Conference:
Begin immediately to establish a prayer attitude that God will impact the lives of the young people and the youth
                        ministry workers in attendance.

                              Organize the youth at your local church (you can even bring non-Full Gospel youth) by
                              hosting an information session for parents and youth, along with organizing any
                              fundraising efforts that might assist with this push.

                              One Month Prior to Attending the Conference:
Organize an official pre-conference session that will go over detailed information for your committed students (it
would be good to invite non-conference attendees as well so that they are exposed to the information---for the
future).

Get your money in order and together!

Create a reminder sheet to distribute to students two weeks prior to the conference.


Safety
  Safety is a HIGH priority for us. This emphasis has directed much of our efforts to ensure that everyone will have
  an enjoyable conference experience. Our established policy is of a 1:10 ratio of chaperones to
  students. Please plan ahead and coordinate cellular phone numbers or walkie-talkies between group leaders.
  Although we have a security team and appropriate safety measures in place, you and your adult sponsors are
  ultimately responsible for the proper supervision of your group at ALL times.

           Waiver/Release Forms: A master copy of the Waiver/Release Form may be found on our
            website link of forms. Be sure to collect these forms signed by the students and their parents
            one to two weeks prior to the conference. Make one copy of these completed forms for yourself
            and bring the other to turn in at registration.

           Checkpoints: Please establish periodic times and locations at the Hilton Hotel and in the
            Georgia World Congress Center for your group to check-in. This will ensure accountability during
            transitions of programs, etc. Additionally, encourage your youth to remain in groups and not
            wander off alone. Each venue that we utilize can accommodate thousands of people – we
            don‟t want any „Finding Nemo‟ situations! We will provide an information desk throughout the
            conference that will assist in situations that may arise.

  Medical Emergencies
  Youth who have special medical conditions requiring medication or special attention MUST notify their
  chaperone, who in term must notify the International Youth Nurse Staff. Chaperones assigned to youth
  must have full knowledge of the medical condition(s) and be willing to accept full responsibility for the
  youth and their medical processes. All chaperones are encouraged to have a copy (or ensure that child has
  a copy) of their medical insurance card. Although we will have limited nurse support on-site for minimum
  assistance, our Fellowship is not responsible for the treatment of illnesses or any diagnosis. Medical
  professionals should be consulted primarily for any medical questions. The Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship
  International is to be notified of any and all incidents immediately.




                                                                    4

About Chaperones
A Chaperone is an individual that is a registered delegate of the international conference. This individual
must be approved by the local ministry to escort their youth. They are there to guide, correct, nurture, and
protect the youth entrusted to them.

A Chaperone MUST be at least 21 years of age. Each chaperone may not be responsible for more than ten
(10) youth during the conference. Chaperones will be expected to have continual oversight over those
whom they are responsible. Additionally, each chaperone will be expected to assist in maintaining order
and general protection of youth.

Chaperones are expected to:
   1. Rise early enough to coordinate morning wake-up and to check appropriate attire and ensure
       materials are in order.
   2. Have a Consent/Liability Form completed and properly signed for each young person. There must
       be a copy on their person at all times. It is highly recommended that each chaperone complete a
       medical emergency form for each youth. CHAPERONES ARE TO PERSONALLY KEEP ALL FORMS
       ORGANIZED & AT READY ACCESS AT ALL TIMES.
   3. Escort youth to appropriate facilities, as deemed by the conference schedule. Please do not drop
       off or leave your youth.
   4. Punctuality! – The key, to a smooth conference, is for everyone to keep on schedule with the
       published times.
   5. Assist with nightly transitions into rooms and enforce curfews.
   6. At no time during the conference should any members of the opposite sex be visiting or relaxing in
       hotel rooms without the presence and permission of a chaperone.


                                      YOUTH EXPECTATIONS
                                     All youth that are participants in for the conference are expected to:
                                          1. Be registered for the conference
                                          2. Begin and end each day with prayer.

             conference participants. Individuals should make arrangements to accommodate themselves
             with the appropriate schedule and activities through the venues of the hotels and the Georgia
             World Congress Center. All of the youth activities, except our joint Friday session, will take place

   Registration / Information Tables set-up in the Hilton Hotel, 2nd Floor.

6. What do I do in an Emergency situation? In an emergency situation, your first priority is to
   remain calm, and if you are assisting an injured student, do not move them. If you are near a
   phone, immediately call the Hotel Operator or 911 on that phone. If you are not near a phone,
   locate an additional individual that might assist you in getting emergency personnel to your
   location as soon as possible. After the emergency situation has been stabilized, please locate a
   staff member of the International Youth Council and inform them of the situation.

   are special needs or circumstances that we need to be made aware, please make us aware of
   those needs.

9. Can I bring my video recorder and camera to the conference? Yes, photography can be
   taken at any point during the conference. If you specifically take photos of faces, you must
   obtain permission of those individuals to obtain their likeness. We also ask that you share
   these photos and videos with us as well. We have taken steps through online mediums to post
   these photos. It‟ll be great to have yours in the bunch!

10. When should I arrive in Atlanta? You should plan to arrive on Tuesday. If you or your youth
    will be participating in any Music, Fine Arts, or Special Events, along with, any one of your group
    specifically volunteering during the conference, there are scheduled meetings and rehearsals
    beginning on Tuesday at 12:00 Noon.
11. How should I dress for the conference? There is a requested dress code for the youth.
   Additionally, each day a theme has been selected and recommended attire for that theme. We
   recommend that you support the conference further by following these recommendations.
   Please consider appropriate dress for the weather of Atlanta, Georgia in the summer, as well as,
   air-conditioned buildings that you will be moving through.

                                   Minister Tye Tribbett (Wednesday)
                                   Born in Camden, New Jersey, Tye Tribbett is the son of a preacher man and a
                                   preacher woman. Growing up in his father's church, Tye learned to make
                                   music at an early age. "I've been playing all my life," he explains. "Before I
                                   knew my ABC's, I knew the ABC's on the keys." With both parents being called
                                   to minister the mantle was passed to Tye. He is a young man groomed for this
                                   generation. He has a melodious flow to minister through music and the
                                   spoken word of God. He speaks with the authority God gave him to preach a
                                   proceeding Word. Like David, Tye is a Radical Praiser. He stands bold with
                                   truth. Tye has been called for such a time as this to be a voice with a clarion
                                   call to his generation. Regardless of the platform, there is no doubt that “He
                                   Represent the Kingdom of GOD.”
                                   Tye and GA have traveled extensively nationally and internationally spreading
                                   the gospel to both the young and the young in heart. With visits to Lagos
                                   Nigeria, Bermuda, Virgin Islands, Trinidad, Amsterdam, London, Guyana, and
                                   a ten day tour in Spain in December of 2008, their experiences have caused
                                   them to become more responsible as carriers of this great Gospel. Tye is a
                                   member of Restoring Life International Church in Pikesville, Md under the
                                   leadership of Drs. Kenneth and June Robinson.
                                   In 1997, Tye is married to a mighty woman of God in her own right, Shante‟.
                                   They share two beautiful daughters Austyn Taylor and Lyncoln Victoria who
                                   both at an early age has an ear for music and unique personalities, designed
                                   by God.

Attention Pastors & Youth Leaders!

This year we are adding an additional seminar to our conference for ages 12-17. Our goal is to assist your Youth Ministry by
seeking to show high caliber and spiritual mature youth how to become developed as Students of Influence in this world rather
than simply existing and being influenced by the world.

We recognize that growing in Christ also means developing a passion for the world become connected to Jesus Christ. It also
means that each young person has a specific vision for their schools and neighborhoods to see how they can effectively
represent Christ in a wide variety of ways. If you have young people in your ministry that are spiritually mature and are looking
for opportunities to further develop their leadership and training as a Spiritual Warrior, then this special seminar is for them!

                                         2009 Conference Evaluation
Thank you for taking the time to complete this conference evaluation. On behalf of Bishop Paul S. Morton, General
Overseer Christopher J. Harris, and the entire staff and volunteers of the International Children & Youth Division,
THANK YOU for taking the time to be honest and reflective as we look to expand, improve, and most of all, accurately
represent the Kingdom of God in all that we do. Of course, as our Presiding Bishop often comments, we desire to
„learn to do well‟.
Please return this evaluation at the end of the conference, via email (fgyouth@aol.com), fax (336.294.4996) or mail
