Trey Skaggs, pastor at First United Methodist Church in Indianola, moderates a discussion addressing the frustrations with uncertainty and anxiety of children and youth leaders; the struggles, stresses and innovation happening in these ministry areas and the value of children and youth worker roles within local faith communities and across the connection.
