- The J12 Encounter with Gregg Johnson
The weekend typically requires $2500 (plus expenses). Because Gregg Johnson usually speaks throughout the weekend at the host church, this amount is able to be met through offerings and/or honorariums from all services, and/or special youth and leadership meetings. Additional expenses include air travel (2 airfares), lodging (usually two rooms), and meals for two people.
- The J12 Encounter with Stephen Hibdon
This weekend typically requires $1000 (plus expenses). Before the Encounter takes place, Stephen usually ministers in your weekend services, and sometimes will conduct a SEVEN CONFERENCE or a workshop focused on the practical side of tween and/or youth ministry that will better equip your leaders to reach the next generation. Additional expenses include air travel (1 or 2 airfare), lodging (1 room), and meals. Workshop topics include “Utilizing Media to Engage your Church”, “Starting a Dynamic Preteen Ministry from Scratch”, “Reviving a Tired Volunteer Staff”, and “J12 Basics and Beyond”.
Note on Budget Concerns:
Some churches do more than this, and some less – but all agree that the
impact goes far beyond one event. Please connect with us openly and
honestly to discuss a budget that fits your Encounter.
- The J12 Weekday Tour
Gregg or Stephen will come out for a weekday night which typically takes place on Wednesdays and involves the whole church family. Church’s utilize this event in various ways. Whether this is to conduct a full blown Encounter, give your volunteer staff a break from their classes, bring momentum to your kid’s ministry, or to add some excitement to your V.B.S, churches agree that the Weekday Tour is a blast. This event is negotiable depending upon schedules and availability. Usually these events are in the local area of Southern California.
