The Well – For Youth Workers From Larger Churches

May 3, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm

Are you a student ministry leader in a larger church?

We’d love to meet with for a time of learning and connection.

Mark your calendars for Friday, May 3 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. We will meet at Troy United Methodist Church (407 Edwardsville Road, Troy, IL).


Dr. Hal Hamilton from Tulsa, OK will be here to share with the group.

Hal is a 33 year veteran of local church youth and college ministry.  Along the way, he has done a little writing, coached high school basketball and taught youth ministry classes at Oklahoma Wesleyan.  He had led over 60 short term mission trips.  He recently transitioned to a new role and now he serves as the Director of Mobilization for Cornerstone, International.  Before this new role, he was Youth and College Team Leader for a downtown First Church in Tulsa, OK where he oversaw a dynamic student ministry and led the student ministry staff.

Hal has been married to Annamarie for 32.5 years and he has five children under the age of 30 and two grandchildren.  They live in Sand Springs, OK where they can watch the sun set over the Arkansas River every night.

Hal has his BA from Asbury University, his MDiv from Asbury Theological Seminary and a DMin in Youth, Family and Culture from Fuller Seminary.   He is a certified Sticky Faith trainer and a UMC deacon.  His ministry is mentioned in the book Growing Young and in Deep Ministry in a Shallow World, both of which were produced by Fuller Youth Institute.
