Transforming Phase: Innovating Discipleship to Children, Youth & Families

Many churches look around their sanctuaries and wonder where the young people are. As culture and generational norms shift, what is the church’s response? Churches can continue doing ministry to children, youth and families, the way they have always done it, or churches can choose to listen and learn from young people, and then innovate.This keynote will address recent research on young people, questions to consider personally and as a leadership team, and simple next steps in preparing to innovate discipleship. The goal is not to walk away with a new outline for a children’s or youth ministry; but, to think thoughtfully about the process of shifting your church's culture in order to innovate.
