Christie Worden - Speaker for Youth Leadership Retreat
Christie Worden

Christie Penner Worden is a Kids Pastor at WMB Church in Waterloo. She loves sharing her vision for kids ministry with adults, igniting innovative ways to disciple children, and blazing trails for kids to step onto with Kingdom purpose. Christie’s own childlike faith allows her to point others to God’s promises and presence.

Christie is credentialed through the Ontario MB Conference, has completed the INCM Engage Certificate (Bethel Seminary), is a certified INCM Coach and recently started her MDiv. She also has her Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance; God has been tuning her voice for years and He remains her first and favourite coach.

Other ministry work includes writing for BradG Kids, INCM.org, KidMin curriculum, and international speaking engagements including preaching at summer camps, online events, and breakouts at a number of conferences.

When she’s not eating donuts, setting fires with her passion or freelancing as a rainbow unicorn, Christie can be found riding her streamer-clad bicycle with her charming husband and three mostly delightful kids.

Programs & Activities

This year we are excited to have Christie Worden return to Camp Crossroads to be our chapel speaker! Christie was a chapel speaker in our summer ministry this year and it’s obvious that she has a heart to equip and inspire youth to live out their faith in authentic ways. (See full bio below.)

You can expect 3 structured chapel sessions with times of worship and teaching from Christie, as well as free time to connect with your own Youth group.

Autumn is a great time to be at Camp and our staff will provide program options and team building opportunities for youth pastors to engage with their student leaders for both fun and learning.

This weekend is also a great time to connect with other youth pastors and youth leadership teams across Ontario. The body of Christ is strengthened as we work together to build up the next generation of leaders.

Don’t miss out – join us for this year’s Youth Leadership Retreat!
