What is my role as an adult leader?
As an adult leader your role is to care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the youth you bring. The youth you are accompanying are in your care. Supervision is a big part of this role, but equally so is the calling you have answered to build relationships with your youth in order that once you return home you can help them build off of what they have experienced in your home congregation. Your group of youth will never rise above your level of attentiveness. It’s important that you stay positive, engaged, and available. Each night at the Great Lakes Gathering is congregational time. This is an opportunity for you to facilitate a time of discussion, reflection, and sharing with your group that is centered on God. Some groups use this time to do a devotion, others simply do “highs and lows”.
