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.

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 F U L L G O S P E L B A P T I S T C H U R C H F E L L O W S H I P / C H I L D R E N & Y O U T H D I V I S I O N 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 F U L L G O S P E L B A P T I S T C H U R C H F E L L O W S H I P / C H I L D R E N & Y O U T H D I V I S I O N 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 F U L L G O S P E L B A P T I S T C H U R C H F E L L O W S H I P / C H I L D R E N & Y O U T H D I V I S I O N About Chaperones A Chaperone is an individual that is a registered delegate of the international conference.
