"Let's Say Grace" - Children, Youth, and a New Kind of Christianity

May 8, 2012 - 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Speaker: Jim, Joy, Luke and Jack Wallis

Jim and Joy Wallis and their two boys, Luke (13) and Jack (9), will offer honest ideas and insights about the struggles and benefits of being a new kind of Christian family.

Their presentation is part of the Children, Youth, and New Kind of Christianity Conference, which runs from May 7-10, 2012 in Washington, DC. This isn’t your average children’s and youth ministry conference!

Something is happening in the church. A new kind of Christianity is taking root and growing across the globe. New forms of ministry, worship, and community are emerging. Questions are being asked. And change is happening.

But amidst these changes and shifts, children and youth are being left behind. Innovative approaches to ministry with adults are emerging around the world, but little critical reflection and attention has been given to how to nurture young people within a new kind of Christianity.

In May of 2012, leaders, ministers, volunteers, parents, and students will gather in Washington, DC, USA to spark conversations about youth and children within a new kind of Christianity. They will talk about innovative practices, critical issues, and controversial topics like violence, racism, interfaith dialogue, and sexuality. They will embark on a journey together to engage in life-giving ministry with young people. And they will blaze a new trail for the 21st-century church.

There is a fee to attend this conference.  Please click the link to the registration website for more information about the costs and the process to register.
