Welcome to Metro 2008! The Metro committee would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to beautiful Destin, Florida and to the 2008 Youth Ministers Metro Association Conference. We are glad that you are here and are praying that you find this week both encouraging and challenging as we experience all that the Lord has in store for us. Metro provides a unique opportunity for you to spend quality time with other youth ministers in fellowship. There will be a lot of laughing, sharing, listening, and casting vision together as we seek to draw close to the Father. So many times when pastors get together, the conversation turns to the outward expressions of our ministries. This year at Metro, our focus is on you! I believe that it should be our prayer that our ministries would abound more and more in knowledge and “depth of insight.” (Phil 1:9) It is an honor to serve as your chairman this year. It has been a privilege to serve you in the past months prior to this week together. Monday evenings have been a special blessing as my family has gathered to pray for yours. I have found much joy in asking for the Lord’s hand to guide this week’s conversations and events. I am confident that the Lord will speak to all of us this year and give us the “depth of insight” that can only come from Him. It is my prayer that we will leave challenged and encouraged to better the ministries we have been entrusted with and to better the care for those placed in our primary and public ministries. Have a wonderful week. We’re so excited you are here!

METRO HISTORY This is the 30th year of the Metro Youth Ministers‘ Association. God has blessed this group over the years. We currently have members from across the country – from Florida to California. The organization is as healthy and strong as it‘s ever been, and we are grateful to those who helped us get started. In September of 1977, Sid Hopkins, Youth Minister at First Baptist Church, Amarillo Texas, wrote to 50 Youth Ministers of large churches in the Southern Baptist Convention. In the letter he suggested the formation of a Youth Ministers group similar to the Metro Education Association, which had been formed eleven years earlier. The organizational meeting was held at the Hilton Inn in downtown Ft. Worth on February 21-23, 1978. Seventeen Youth Ministers attended the first meeting of the Metro Youth Ministers‘ Association.

The Metro Youth Ministers‘ Association has grown, developed, and changed to meet the needs of its membership from year to year. It is intended to be a very flexible organization designed to provide for fellowship between men and women with two common bonds:

The Lordship of Jesus Christ Ministry to Youth

Metro Memories…. 1978 ~ Amarillo First meeting of Metro called together by Sid Hopkins, Youth Minister at FBC Amarillo, TX. Seventeen (17) youth ministers assembled at the Hilton Inn in downtown Ft. Worth on February 2123, 1978. 1979 ~ Orlando Metro Youth Minister‘s Association was birthed in 1978. Sid Hopkins, elected chairman from the organizational meeting in 1978, assembled the organization in Orlando, FL for the ‘79 meeting. The story is told that one of the members when returned to his hotel room found a very large basket of fruit. All of the other members were jealous and envious because none of them had received such a wonderful gift. That particular youth minister read the card to the group and said it happens every time he travels on church business. The card said, ―To the greatest youth minister in the country…have a wonderful conference‖… and it was signed by HIS PASTOR! Needless to say he was the talk of the meeting and everyone was wishing that their pastor showed the same support and generosity! 1980 ~ San Diego This was the year of the FLOOD. While Metro was meeting, there were horrible rains and consequently one of the major rivers flooded over its banks up to the hotel where the meeting was taking place. Many of the members had to relocate to rooms higher in the hotel. The hotel even had to provide truck transportation to get people out. One of the fun excursions was to be a trip to the famous San Diego Zoo. Well, the group visited the zoo, but much of it was a ―water‖ tour!!!!!


1981 ~ Washington, DC Dan Carter served as Chairman this year and the group met in Washington, DC. One of the highlights was a special tour of the White House for Metro members. 1982 ~ Nashville Metro met in Nashville at Union Station Hotel. We were joined by many of the youth heroes from the Baptist Sunday School Board. The BSSB helped finance our trip to Nashville in order to get us to meet there with them. Lloyd Arnsmeyer served as chairman. 1983 ~ New Orleans Bruce Edwards, Youth Minister from Eastside Baptist Church, Marietta was elected chairman for this year‘s group. The meeting was held in New Orleans. On the pre-visit to New Orleans, the officers had some difficult decisions to make as the hotel that the convention bureau had secured for our meeting was not even completed yet! The pre-visit was a special ―hard hat‖ visit with the sales manager of the Sheraton trying to help us imagine what would be ready by the time the group had their meeting. No reservations could be made for hotel rooms until the very last minute. The group had a great time in New Orleans in a beautiful new hotel. Most were the very first people to stay in their hotel rooms! Of course you can imagine how much fun walks down Bourbon Street and Café Du Monde were with a bunch of youth ministers!! 1984 ~ San Antonio Beautiful San Antonio, TX was the site for this year‘s meeting under the leadership of Roger Glidewell, Youth Minister at Trinity Baptist in San Antonio. The meeting was held in a great hotel located on the river. One of the highlights was the nightly boat rides on the river from the hotel to the tourist sites. 1985 ~ New York We listed topics of interest on a chalkboard and the top vote getters made up our agenda. Attendance was maybe around 28-30. We all saw the musical ―Cats‖ on Broadway and ate at a very nice restaurant. We really enjoyed NY, but I wish we had gone to see the Yankees or Mets play. We stayed at the old Sheraton Squire Hotel in Manhattan at a cost of $85 plus $9 in state/city taxes per night. My airfare for this trip was $270. I am sure we thought this was really expensive back then. Our membership fee was $50 and our conference fee was $50. Based on 19 responding to our annual compensation survey the average salary package was $32,423 (including housing). Back then, we were encouraged not to bring our wives, but 15 attended this meeting. To my knowledge, they did not have any special meetings but I am sure they did a lot of sightseeing and shopping. 1986 ~ Orlando We received a discounted pass for one day at Disney World/Epcot. Richard Ross was our guest and I think he had just gone to the Sunday School Board as a Youth Ministry Coordinator (Church Administration Dept.). He challenged us to consider having our meeting in Nashville in 1989 so we could be supportive of the Board‘s National YM Conference, and we later voted to do so. We stayed at the Hyatt Orlando for $65 a night. Here is a quote from one of Jerome Smith‘s letters to our membership, ―My desire for Orlando ‘86 is that we will come together and share the hurts that we have, the joys that we seek, and the concerns that we have as we look toward reaching young people for Christ‖. The next year many of us brought our wives with us on the cruise and this tradition has grown each year since.


1987 ~ The Miami Cruise, 10th Anniversary This may have been one of the least expensive (and most controversial!) Metros that we‘ve had. The total cost was $689 (airfare, room, all meals, tips, round trip shuttle, taxes, port charges, and entertainment) for a 4-day/3-night Carnival Cruise through the Bahamas, with stops at Freeport and Nassau. Actually, our $100 Metro fees were applied to this total, which really helped a lot. It was a great time and the food was unbelievable. Unfortunately, a few of our members did a little gambling in the on-board casino and I think this got back to some of the pastors. Needless to say, this did not enhance our reputation as Youth Ministers or the reputation of our Metro group as a whole. Our guest speaker each morning was Dan Yeary, pastor of Coral Gables BC in the Miami area. Dan‘s wife led a couple of sessions for the wives. The only inconvenience was meeting space. We met in several locations on the boat, including a bar and a movie theatre. This was also the year of the infamous ―Rin Fin Fin‖ incident. The cruise sponsored a variety show one night and everyone was invited to participate. One of our charter members, Doug Wood, could not resist and came out dressed in a full magicians outfit including a cape. He introduced his pet fish ―Rin Fin Fin‖ who could do a variety of tricks. For example, he would toss the fish through a hoop into a bucket of water, etc. His final act though was to show us how he could play baseball. Doug proceeded to toss the fish in the air and hit him with a baseball bat. The fish had been thawed from a frozen state and was very brittle. Upon impact, the fish disintegrated into hundreds of tiny pieces and was scattered throughout the audience in a disgusting ―fishy spray‖. Talk about an angry crowd! Doug immediately ducked out of sight and was not seen until the next day. Lucky for him, he had been dressed ―in disguise‖ or he might have been thrown overboard. 1988 ~ Nashville, TN, National Youth Ministry Conference 3 This meeting was held in conjunction with the NYMC3, sponsored by our Sunday School Board (Lifeway). The schedule was structured to allow us to attend/lead conferences and to attend the Metro meetings. It was a grueling schedule and I remember that Chuck Gartman (FBC, Conroe) recommended that in future years, when the national conference was held, that Metro should meet either prior to or right after the conference. At our last session, we had several representatives from the BSSB to serve on a panel. We were able to have some Q & A and engage in a dialogue with these leaders. We stayed on the Club Level of the Stouffer Hotel and this level included a room where we could enjoy a continental breakfast each morning. I remember that Chuck conducted a topical survey prior to the meeting and this became the beginning of a pre-determined agenda. Conveners for each topic were enlisted in advance, they were encouraged to make some brief opening statements, and then to open it up for discussion. This was a step toward better use of our time during the meeting. 1989 ~ South Padre We stayed at the Sheraton and began on Tuesday evening with a Mexican Fiesta out by the pool and concluded on Friday morning. We had one worship service (a first for Metro) led by Roger Glidewell (Trinity, San Antonio). Our pre-set sessions were divided into 3 categories – (1) Priority: family, integrity, relationships; (2) Programming: big events, resources, creative worship; (3) Professional: ministry in an economic crunch, balancing your ministry, and keys to successful youth ministry. Chris Liebrum (assoc. member & youth consultant with the BGCT) led a session entitled: ―What I Wish Someone Had Told Me 20 Years Ago‖. The average salary/housing package with 24 responding to the survey was $35,842. Doug Wood (charter member) wrote a letter to each Metro member lamenting the fact that he was leaving Youth Ministry (FBC Dallas) to take on the role of Minister of Education and Administration at a church in Richardson. 1990 ~ Laguna Beach Due to no fault of our officers, when we arrived at the Surf and Sand Hotel we found the hotel to be in the middle of a major remodeling project. Jackhammers were used everyday. We were finally able to convince constructions workers to avoid use of the ―fun toys‖ until after our meeting. This hotel was literally on the beach. You would hear the water hit the side of the building at high tide. Most of us had a room with a balcony overlooking the ocean. It was great! John MacArthur


was our guest speaker for one night and Roger Glidewell led us in a worship experience on the same evening. We took a bus tour of LA and enjoyed a tour of Universal Studios. Ron Moore (who had recently left FBC Amarillo, to become the Youth Consultant for the Missouri Baptist Convention) addressed the topic ―Is There Life After Youth Ministry?‖ and Emory Gadd (Student Minister at Sagemont in Houston) talked about ―Keeping an Intimate Love Affair With Jesus‖. There was also a lot of discussion about what it would take to minister to youth in the ‗90s. Our first night meal was a Surfside Barbecue at a cost of $34.50 per person. Our first night‘s lodging of $105 ($52.50 if you shared a room with a fellow member) was taken from our Metro fees. A continental breakfast was provided at each of our sessions. 1992 ~ Del Lago (Lake Conroe, TX) This was the year that GOLF really took its place at the Metro Conference. Staying at a ―golf resort‖ it was decided to have the first organized golf tournament at the ‘92 meeting. Charlie Dodd lost his chipping wedge when it slipped out of his hands and traveled about 25 yards through the air – landing in the middle of a water hazard. The meeting began on Monday evening and concluded with business on Friday morning. Chuck Gartman entertained us at our Monday evening banquet by singing some country & western songs including ―All My Exes Live in Texas‖. He had just gone to the BSSB as a Youth Consultant. We had our traditional devotionals each morning led by one of our members, but we increased our worship time to two nights and Louie Giglio spoke. The average salary/ housing package was $42,956, with the high recorded at $65,000 and the low at $26,460 (18 members responding). All but two of those indicated that they received insurance and annuity benefits. 1993 ~ Nashville, National Youth Ministry Conference 4 We took the advice of Chuck Gartman from 5 years prior, and voted to hold our meeting on the weekend prior to the national conference instead of integrating the schedules. We began on Friday evening and concluded at noon on Monday. Registration for NYMC4 began at 1 p.m. on Monday. This schedule worked well. Topics of discussion included…‖Youth Ministry 2001: Year Round School, Aids, & Background Checks for Volunteers‖ led by Bruce Edwards; ―Lifetime Youth Ministry‖ led by Jerry Morris; and discussions concerning Sunday School & Discipleship. Sunday afternoon we enjoyed a panel discussion with representatives in Youth Ministry from the Sunday School Board including – Myrte Veach (Sunday School), Richard Ross (Church Administration), and Clyde Hall (Discipleship). Sunday evening we enjoyed a worship service with Billy Sprague (music) and Sylvia Horney (speaker/comedienne). We stayed at the Union Station Hotel ($56 per night) less than a block from the BSSB. A by-laws addition was recommended and it read this way, ―A full-time Associate Minister to Youth may apply for membership in Metro until we reach a total of 10 Associates. Once we reach this number it is recommended that full-time associates form their own Metro organization and meet simultaneously with our present organization. They would elect their own officers and set their own agenda.‖ It was defeated. 1994 ~ Destin During the year (1993-94) we lost 14 members for various reasons. Some notables who left were Emory Gadd, Neal Jeffery, Chuck Williams, Karl Shackleford, Larry Bertrand, and Walker Moore. We stayed at the San Destin Bayside Resort, which had its own golf course. This gave us a good excuse to have another golf tournament. It was cheaper to share a twobedroom cottage with other members than to pay for a hotel room for two. At least 18 wives attended this meeting and I think they had some kind of meeting each day. David Bell (music) and Louie Giglio led us in worship on Wednesday and Thursday evening. This was the first time we had a rep from the SBC Annuity Board to join us to advise us on our personal finances.


1995 ~ San Francisco We got a great deal at the Hyatt Regency on Fisherman‘s Wharf ($110 per night). This was a memorable experience and a special location for our Metro members. Some of the fun things we experienced included a bus tour of the city, a tour of Alcatraz, Muir Wood, The Cliff House Restaurant, visit to Haight-Ashbury district, Golden Gate Seminary, Berkley, the U. of California, cable car rides, great seafood and sourdough bread, Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory, Night Time Cruise in the SF Bay & Mexican Dinner on Tiburon Peninsula, the seals at Fisherman‘s Wharf, etc. We experienced a Concert of Prayer (popular at the time) each day guided by Phil Newbury and Jeff Warren (Park Cities, Dallas). Our officers organized two sets of breakout groups for this meeting, which allowed us to cover more topics, but with less time per topic. The average salary/housing package that year was $49,207 (30 responses). With the increase in adjustments to membership qualifications, the term ―grandfathering‖ began to be used in Business Session more. 28 wives attended this conference, and their meeting time was a little more organized. Decisions made at the 1995 Conference…  Membership By-Laws #3 – The annual membership fee is $100, due no later than September 15th. A $50 late fee will be added for each 30-day period beyond the deadline ($150 until Oc tober 15th and $200 until November 15th).  Membership By-Laws #5 – ―by January 15th‖ was changed to ―by November 5th‖. 1996 ~ South Padre Decisions made at the 1996…  General Qualifications – terminology changed from ―a church‖ to ―a Southern Baptist church‖  Specific Qualifications – the following terminology was added in reference to the SBC Annual Report – ―a copy of which is to be included with application‖  Specific Qualifications – a Basic Requirement was added to which all applicants must adhere – ―Youth Sunday School enrollment of 400 and an average attendance of 200 (excluding 6th grade and college).‖ In addition, an applicant must now meet ―3 out of 4‖ of the remaining requirements.  Membership By-Law #1 – the following terminology was added – ―…plus a maximum of 10 honorary members. Total membership shall not exceed 60.‖  Membership By-Law #6 was changed to read – ―If a church has multiple full-time Youth Ministers, membership is limited to one (1) representative from that church.‖  Membership By-Law # 8 – the following was added ―Clarification: The Youth Minister is the member, but the church provides the qualifications for membership.‖  Membership By-Law #9 – the term ―Southern Baptist Convention organization‖ was added along with the following phrase – ―The move from a Metro church to a SBC youth-related organization must take place before the next annual Metro Conference (within a maximum of 12 months).  There was a recommendation made that the 1997 Executive Council study the need to raise the qualifications for Metro membership and bring a report to the ‘97 meeting. Another recommendation was made that the 1997 Executive Council study the issue of Honorary Metro members having voting privileges (which they currently did not have) and bring a report to the ‘97 meeting. 1997 ~ Boston, 20th Anniversary We stayed at an older hotel, The Tremont House, located right in the heart of the theatre district. They were undergoing a major restoration and so we were able to negotiate a reduced rate. The cost was set at $119 per room/per night (the most we had ever paid for Metro lodging up to this time). Our meeting space was complimentary and we were able to enlist 11 sponsors to cover the cost of 7 meals and 4 breaks, including a lunch for the wives. Some of these sponsors also provided give-a-


ways that were distributed to our members at each session and some of our meals. The total amount of money provided by our sponsors came to a little over $5,000. Attendance for this meeting swelled to 48 (plus 38 wives). Our sessions were built around our Past, Present, and Future. We began on Monday evening and concluded on Thursday afternoon. We brought back the ―open forum‖ concept and it was well received. This was the first year with the newly revised ―late fees‖ for membership, and we collected about $700 from this. The conference fee had been increased to $150 and was due, as usual, on January 15. In the end, we had a balance of $6,688 to apply to the 1998 meeting. With 29 members responding, the average salary/housing package was up to $50, 558. Other highlights of the 1997 meeting…  We welcomed 11 new members with such notables as Doug Fields (Saddleback, Mission Viejo, CA), Gary Stroope (University, Coral Gables, FL), Len Taylor (FBC, Norfolk, VA), and Pike Wisner (Park Cities, Dallas).  We invited former chairmen to join us and reminisce with us about the history of Metro. Those who served on our panel included the founder of Metro, Sid Hopkins, who was serving as Director of Missions at the association in Lawrenceville, GA; Keith Kline (BSSB), Walker Moore (Awe Star Ministries, Tulsa, OK); and Roger Glidewell (Awe Star Ministries, FBC, Orlando).  Some of our give-a-ways included a Boston Red Sox fitted cap, an engraved pen, a YouthLink 2000 Jacket, a golf shirt and a Metro notepad. We enjoyed the Boston vs. Anaheim baseball game in historic Fen way Park. The Boston Red Sox organization provided free tickets for all our members and our wives. We rode the subway to the game and ate dinner at one of the many restaurants surrounding the ballpark. This began a streak of 3 major league baseball games at Metro over the next 5 years. Business discussed at the 1997 meeting…  The Executive Council reported on its study regarding the need for raising the qualification for Metro membership. Chuck Gartman (BSSB) reported that Enrollment is taken from the SBC Annual Report, but since the SBC report does not include average attendance, the Board uses a formula to calculate an estimated attendance. The current list contained 130 churches with 400+ enrolled and 75 churches with 200+ average attendance. No change was made.  The Executive Council recommended that the word ―Purpose‖ that is the heading for the page that contains our purpose, qualifications, and organization be changed to read: ―Constitution‖  The Executive Council also reported on its study regarding the issue of Honorary Members having voting privileges. It was the consensus of the Executive Council that the existing ByLaws already give Honorary Members full privileges (including the right to vote) and full responsibilities (including paying membership and conference fees). Therefore, there was no need to take any further action. 1998 ~ Phoenix Lodging at the historic Sheraton San Marcos ($120 per night) in Chandler, AZ, was a great experience. The hotel was designed like a palace. We visited the Rawhide Western Town and enjoyed a steak dinner on the first night, had another organized golf tournament, and took in an Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game. The Executive Council was able to enlist 13 sponsors, who provided 15 meals. The wives meetings were the most organized to date. Gifts were provided each day for members and wives. This was really a fun Metro. Dan Yeary (pastor at North Phoenix BC) was back at Metro. We voted that the annual meeting be held from Monday evening and conclude on Friday at noon. It was also decided that a list of the Executive Council duties and responsibilities be included in the conference notebook each year. The average salary/housing package was $52,658.


1999 ~ Gulf Shores Chicago had originally been voted on as the site for this year. However, after a lot of research (and in light of concerns about the cost of last year‘s lodging) the Executive Council decided to stay in the Central Time Zone and move south. The Emerald Coast presented itself as a wonderful alternative. The ―climate‖ of Metro was changing, with a preference for the beach and common meeting areas for relaxing and talking with other Metro members and their wives. This year offered lots of sponsored meals and added a constant supply of free snacks and drinks. Sand volleyball was a favorite pass time, along with great seafood and relaxing by the pool. Business discussed at the 1999 meeting…  We decided to change the Associate (Honorary) Member By-Laws to allow Metro members who move to a non-SBC Youth Ministry-related position to retain their membership.  It was decided that the Executive Council could offer up to two (2) of these Honorary Memberships each year, not to exceed a total of ten (10) Honorary Members.  We discussed the need for starting an organization for full-time Youth Ministry Associates and Junior High ministers, but no action was taken.  It was voted to allow the Executive Council the freedom to set the schedule for Metro each year pursuant to written notification of the membership. 2000 ~ Destin Tops‘l became our new favorite place to meet. The casual, relaxed atmosphere at the beach reflected the overall attitude of the group. There was more golf and sand volleyball, plenty of time together around the pool, and lots of great seafood! The average salary/housing package was divided into 3 categories: 200-274…$51,040; 275-399…$54,107; 400+…$57,579. 2001 ~ San Diego The Holiday Inn was $139 per night. Visit to the Zoo and a Padres baseball game were some of the fun highlights. Our Monday evening meal was held at Ruth‘s Chris Steakhouse. 2002 ~ Destin We returned to our favorite spot. First night‘s activities included go carts and putt-putt golf with para-sailing as top score prize. Each afternoon, following the sessions found members involved in a volleyball tournament with some major egos on the line. Discussion in business meeting involved the possibility of voting into the records coming to Destin every other year. The vote failed to place this in the by-laws, but it was a unanimous vote on wanting Destin to be our every other year destination. 2003 ~ Hilton Head We met from Monday through Thursday, with a concluding fellowship Friday morning to share some final farewells. Accommodations were at the Crowne Plaza. First night's activities began with a beach-side dinner at the pavilion then we all headed for the island bowling alley. Adorned with Metro bowling shirts to make us look like an official league (until people saw us bowl) we took over the entire place. Chris White led us in worship for the week and special speaker on Tuesday was Jay Strack. Under Chairman Frank Gunn's leadership, we had ample "freebie" giveaways of products, materials and samples. We voted in business meeting to meet in Colorado Springs for 2005 under Chairman Jerry Royal. East/West representatives Phil Herring and Chris Mayfield were elected to serve for the 2004 term.


2004 ~ Destin Well, it‘s official. METRO loves Destin. We formally acknowledged the relationship this year by unanimously voting to return next year (instead of just coming back every other year). The 37 members who attended the Business Meeting on Thursday morning were apparently of one heart and mind. They also unanimously elected Jeff Lovingood as Chairman Elect, Shane Sisk as West Rep., and Jeff Phillips as East Rep. Minor adjustments were made to clean up the wording in the By-Laws. There were a total of 47 members at this year‘s meeting including 29 returning members, 6 honorary members, and 12 new members. Dave Paxton was our Chairman. We ate well, starting at Poppy‘s Seafood on Monday night, with a full breakfast and lunch provided Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Chris White led our singing and METRO members led most of the sessions, with a guest appearance by Josh McDowell. The weather was great, the volleyball time intense, and everyone returned home at least one shade darker. 2005 ~ Destin We were back in Destin again this year! It was an awesome year. Jerry Royal did an outstanding job as Chairman. Student Life provided a tremendous Dinner Cruise. The theme was Getting Back To Basics. Chris Lovell was unanimously elected Chairman Elect. Chris White led us in Worship and did a tremendous job. We decided to go back to Destin because Tops‘l and Destin IS our favorite place! Our speaker, Paul Burleson did an outstanding job leading us as a speaker. We are all looking forward to next year. 2006 ~ Destin Back in Destin again!! Metro loves the beach! Jeff Lovingood was our chairman and the theme of the week was built around ―Relationships.‖ David Landrith, Pastor from Longhollow Baptist Church,was our guest speaker. Steve Wright was unanimously elected Chairman-elect. There were several important business decisions made as the organization voted to raise the membership qualifications.  The changes reflected in our basic requirement of membership being raised from an enrollment of 400 to 500, and an average attendance of 200 to 250.  Resident membership was raised from 4,000 to 5,000.  Annual church budget was raised from $1.25 million to $3 million.  Minimum full-time professional ministerial staff raised from 6 to 8. 2007 ~ Destin ~ 30th Anniversary! Destin, Florida was our location for a 4th straight year as METRO celebrated its 30th year anniversary. The week was built around the theme, ―Impacting Lives‖ as METRO really challenged our thinking. Chris Lovell (chairman) and his committee (Steve Wright, Jimmy Scroggins, Shawn Smith, and Jeff Lovingood) did a great job. Here were some of the highlights:  We were at maximum membership with 50 members and 8 out of our 10 honorary member slots filled. The conference had 55 of the 58 members attend not counting the wives.  We welcomed 13 new members.  Student Life provided us with a great meal at the Backporch followed by a great Dolphin Cruise with dessert. Thanks again to Randy Hall and Student Life for being so generous to METRO and all of our ministries.  30th Anniversary picture was taken on the beach and a copy sent to each member.  Ron Luce of Teen Mania was a guest speaker and really challenged us on really going after students for the Lord in the next five years. His book, ―Battlecry for a Generation‖ was one of the many things Ron blessed us with.


 

Mark Cahill was a guest speaker that really challenged us to the core about being the personal witness and evangelist we are all called to be. Mark also blessed us with his books, ―One Heartbeat Away‖ and ―The One Thing You Can‘t Do In Heaven.‖ Shawn Smith of FBC Springdale was elected unanimously as Chairman Elect. Chris White led us in worship; we had strong sponsorships, and incredible sessions which were all very challenging.


METRO CONFERENCE 2007 DESTIN, FL APRIL 22-26, 2007


CONSTITUTION Purpose The Metro Youth Minister‘s Association has a two-fold purpose. The first is to provide fellowship and a support group of like minds and calling. The second is to share creative resources and innovative ideas within this support group.

Qualifications General: Person must be a full-time Youth Minister in the area of Middle School and/or High School education ministries of a Southern Baptist church that has a city-wide ministry in a metro area.

The move from a metro church to a SBC youth-related organization must take place before the next annual conference (within a minimum of 12 months). 10. If a Metro member with five years prior membership moves from a Metro church to a nonyouth-related organization (and there is room within the maximum of 10 honorary members); the next year he/she may annually apply to the Executive Council to attend Metro as an Honorary member (Maximum of 2 per year). 11.

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL DUTIES Chairperson:      

     

Set date for a visit to the conference city and make arrangements for lodging/transportation for the Executive Council. Set appointments for visits with hotels that have conference facilities. Select hotel, in Consultation with Executive Council. Conduct planning session (usually during site inspection) to determine conference topics, session leaders, devotional/worship leaders, invited guests, member gift, Monday banquet, and schedule. Confirm with selected hotel the following: Conference date, number of rooms (including early arrivals and late stay-overs,) rates, use of conference space, and meals. Remind members that a flat fee of $300 will need to be paid by all members – whether or not they attend the annual meeting – due by September 15th. A $50 late fee will still be added for each 30-day period beyond the deadline ($350 due until October 15 th and $400 due until November 15th). If a current member fails to pay by November 15 th, membership in METRO is cancelled. Formulate an estimated budget covering income and expenses. Accept and evaluate applications of potential new members - remember to ask for SBC Annual Report. Prepare/print the Metro directory and member name cards for display on conference tables. Determine number and cost of meals to be provided - enlist sponsorships. Secure devotional and worship leaders. Preside at all sessions during the annual conference.

Past Chairperson:     

Mail Conference directory to absentee members along with any other pertinent information. Open a Metro checking account and serve as the treasurer. Prepare a financial summary for the annual conference that includes income and expenses. Purchase a gift for chairperson‘s secretary. Assist chairperson with enlistment of meal sponsorships and any other matters of preparation for the conference.

Chairperson-Elect:   

Take notes during the conference business session. Prepare conference evaluation sheets and distribute to each member. Assimilate evaluations in preparation for next year‘s conference.

East/West Representatives:   

Maintain contact with members for anniversaries, birthdays, and prayer needs. Enlist and confirm session leaders who will facilitate discussions. Secure, organize, and inform members of recreation/leisure opportunities in and around the conference city.  Assist the chairperson, as needed, with other matters of preparation.


Old Business: There were 47 members present at the Business Meeting. The Executive Council gave a report on the 2 items that were referred to them for consideration at the 2006 meeting. 1 2

With regard to satellite churches and multiple campuses, the Executive Council determined that no change was needed in the current By Laws and we should retain the present interpretation of By Laws: Membership #6. With regard to increasing the maximum number of members, the Executive Council felt that it was best to retain the current limit of 50 members and 10 honorary members as stated in By Laws: Membership #1.

The recommendations were unanimously approved by the members in attendance. Before the election of officers, Phil Newberry reminded the group that the Chairman Elect serves for 3 years on the Executive Council. The Chairman Elect, East Representative and West Representative were unopposed and elected unanimously. Chairman Elect: Shawn Smith East Representative: Scott Heath West Representative: Walter Ballou Before the site selection for 2009 was discussed, Phil Newberry gave a brief history on the subject and explained why the group had chosen to come to Tops‘l 6 of the last 8 years. Chairman Chris Lovell suggested that we might want to make Destin our ―permanent‖ location – until such time as the group determined that a change was needed. Jerry Royal so moved; Shawn Smith provided the second; and the group unanimously approved it. The Executive Council was encouraged to continue shopping and comparing properties to assure the best possible rates. The dates for METRO 2008 were agreed to as follows: 1st choice: April 20-24 2nd choice: April 27-May 1 Jimmy Scroggins suggested that the annual membership fee should be increased by $50 in response to raising costs and be combined with the conference fee in order to simplify the bookkeeping for the Executive Council. He made a motion that we amend the By Laws: Membership #3 by requiring that a flat fee of $300 be paid by all members – whether or not they attend the annual meeting – due by September 15th. A $50 late fee will still be added for each 30-day period beyond the deadline ($350 due until October 15th and $400 due until November 15th). If a current member fails to pay by November 15th, membership in METRO is cancelled. Matt Bartig provided the second and the motion was unanimously approved. It was noted that members who are unable to attend the annual meeting in recent years have typically received a box of resources from the meeting, helping justify the fee. This change in By Laws also affects the duties of the Chairperson. In light of rising food costs, Matt Bartig asked the Executive Council to consider allowing interested sponsors to provide dinner for sub groups (possibly regional in nature) on an evening when the entire group was not eating together. He also mentioned the possibility of combining sponsorships and allowing more than one organization to provide a meal. Gift cards were also mentioned as a way for sponsors to benefit the group without paying for an entire meal. Dave Paxton asked the Executive Council to remember that a sponsor‘s presentation to the group is not to exceed 10 minutes, per By Laws: General #5. It was noted that this has become somewhat more difficult to monitor in the age of the ―infomercial.‖
