As many of you know, EV is a partnering sponsor for a great event in May called Children, Youth and a New Kind of Christianity, which will gather leaders, ministers, volunteers, parents, and students to spark conversations about youth and children. We will talk about innovative practices, critical issues, and controversial topics like violence, racism, interfaith dialogue, and sexuality.
Even better, YOU have the ability to participate in a direct way. Share your ideas about children’s and youth ministry through an intriguing presentation, an engaging workshop, or by being part of a panel of innovators in children’s and youth ministry. Submit a proposal by the January 12 deadline (see http://children-youth.com/get-involved/) and you could join Brian McLaren, Tony Campolo, Shane Claiborne, Ivy Beckwith, Jeremiah Wright, Joyce Mercer, John Westerhoff, and many others who will be sharing at CYNKC. For more information and to register for the conference, visit http://children-youth.com/. Join us in shaping the future of children’s and youth ministry, a future marked by hope, love, peace, and a passion for following Jesus with friends young and old. We need your help to make this groundbreaking event a success!
