Ministry with Young People – Session 1
June 8 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
The Faith Formation Office is partnering with Ablaze Ministries to offer a three-part virtual training program for ministry with young people.
Session 1 – A New Age of Ministry
The sky is not falling, but everything has changed. The age of change caused by the pandemic was the final straw in the change of the ages away from a Christian-centered society. This workshop will talk about these challenging realities and how we as ministry leaders can adapt and meet the emerging needs of those we serve in this new age of ministry.
