Over the weekend of March 19, 25-30 Young Adult Leaders from all over the Great Lakes Region of the US congregated in Chicago for the yearly #reCharge2011 Youth Leadership summit. Pastors James Black, Sid Hardy, and I taught back to back seminars on various topics of Young Adult ministry, having intimate and fruitful discussions with those shaping the practices of today’s church.
Topics included Pastor Black’s “walking under the bridge” (reference to homeless ministry) to do more than just talk in our christian life.
Pastor Hardley presented on characteristics of the millennial generation, and creating a young adult friendly congregation. I taught on the 4 core values of today’s young adult generation, and the transformational model of young adult ministry.
If you were not able to attend, no need to worry. In a few weeks (April 4-6), a similar training seminar will convene in Arlington Texas at
#Ignition2011 Young Adult Leaders Convention.
