Youth Ministry that Makes a Difference

tbYou want to make a difference in the lives of your youth but, like many, may be struggling with the rapid pace of change in our world. Fortunately, there are great resources and research from places dedicated to youth ministry like Princeton Theological Seminary Youth Ministry Center and Fuller Youth Institute.

Join pastor and congregational consultant Terrance Bridges as he presents some of the latest information on youth development from Fuller and Princeton, along with themes that have developed through the Center for Congregations' work in Indiana. Terrance will lead the discussion about factors that lead to thriving youth initiatives in congregations, help you glean current best practices from one another and bring insights into new skills that will empower your youth ministry.


In this workshop, you will:

  • identify best practices and key characteristics of congregations with thriving youth initiatives.
  • generate concrete ideas for improving youth development in your congregation.
  • develop a network of professionals with common interests.

This luncheon workshop is 11 a.m.-1 p.m. (Central time) Wednesday, May 9, 2017 in Newburgh. The cost is $10 per person. This fee includes lunch, conversation and a copy of the book Why They Stay by Dr. Steve R. Parr and Dr. Tom Crites. Registration is limited to Indiana congregations.
