Where are all the young people in church?
The folks at Faith Forward suggest: Something is happening in the church. A new kind of Christianity is taking root and growing across the globe. New forms of ministry, worship, and community are emerging. Questions are being asked. And change is happening.
But amidst these changes and shifts, children and youth are being left behind. Innovative approaches to ministry with adults are emerging around the world, but little critical reflection and attention has been given to how to nurture young people within a new kind of Christianity.
In this class, 4 keynote speakers who appeared at the 2014 Faith Forward conference, entitled ‘Reimagining Children’s and Youth Ministry,’ share their insights into what this reimagining should look like. Lessons include:
- Where Are We? with Dave Csinos
- Reimagining: Theology with Ivy Beckwith
- Reimagining: Story with Marvin Bray
- Reimagining: Rhythm with Danielle Shroyer
This class is a pre-recorded online course that will take an average learner about 45 minutes to work through. You can pause the class at any time and return to it later.
