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, 450 leaders, ministers, volunteers, parents, and students gathered in Washington, DC, USA to spark conversations about youth and children within a new kind of Christianity. They spoke about innovative practices, critical issues, and controversial topics like violence, racism, and sexuality. They embarked on a journey together to engage in life-giving ministry with young people. And they blazed a new trail for the 21st-century church.
