Missional faith: Equipping young people to participate in God's mission to the world
Students face conflicting messages from the media, the church, and their peers. We have the opportunity to walk alongside them as they work through these issues and form their identity in Christ. We invite all youth pastors to join us for a day of discovery as we uncover adolescent faith development and discuss missional youth ministry. Speakers Hugh Halter, Luke Vander Leest, and Dr. Jason Lief will lead our time together.
We encourage you to take advantage of our Youth Pastor Visit Policy to help cover some of your expenses.
