Here’s some stuff going on in the youth ministry world that is of note:
- The National Youth Workers Convention takes place this weekend, with the addition of Theological Forums. I think this is an excellent development.
- I presented a paper at the Association of Youth Ministry Educators this fall, arguing that evangelical youth ministry is directly responsible for the Emerging Church Movement, which is a bit ironic since evangelicals have turned bearish on the movement. A version of that paper is in the current issue of Immerse Journal, which you can download for free here.
- The latest iteration of re:form has been released. This one is called re:form ancestors, and it’s a character-based study of the Hebrew Scriptures (see video below). A New Testament edition is next in the queue.
