Mesoamerica Nazarene Youth International recently held two leadership events for pastors and leaders in Panama and El Salvador.
More than 90 people attended the first conference, held 24-25 August in Panama, while 70 people attended the second conference, held 31 August-1 September, in El Salvador. District superintendents, pastors, ministry leaders, and other local leaders were invited to the events.
The conferences focused on integrating coaching techniques — defined as ongoing, intentional conversations — into youth leadership roles. Regional NYI Coordinator Milton Gay and International Leadership Trainer Felix Ortiz led the trainings.
“NYI wants to enhance transformational leadership in its leaders so that they can learn how the role of coaching helps us to enhance and empower new generations,” said Odily Diaz, North Central Area NYI coordinator.
