Faith Forward 2016
“Re-Imagining Children’s and Youth Ministry through Theology, Relationship, and Practice”
April 18-21, 2016 in Chicago
For the past 4 years, I’ve been following the amazing work of Faith Forward, an organization that’s rethinking children’s ministry and youth ministry in innovative and progressive ways. The work they are doing is shifting the paradigm of how we minister with young people in ways that are truly inclusive and creative, and they deal with important issues like sexuality, race, and violence, that are unaddressed by other events and networks.
I’ve been honoured to be a speaker and participant at every Faith Forward gathering so far. And while I can’t be there in person this year, I’ll be doing a video presentation on the opening night. Other speakers and artists this year include Lisa Sharon Harper, Nichole Flores, Audrey Assad, Otis Moss III, Ivy Beckwith, Daniel White Hodge, Soong-Chan Rah, Leah Gunning Francis, and many others!
If you’re looking for a dynamic, creative, and passionate group of leaders who are changing what it means to do faith formation with youth and children, then you won’t want to miss Faith Forward 2016, April 18-21 at St. James Cathedral in Chicago.
