Next Minister's Enrichment Day set for March 18
Building an intergenerational approach in churches and keeping young adults engaged is the focus of the next Minister's Enrichment Day at Baptist Bible Seminary.
The Tuesday, March 18 event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Stowell Seminary Building on the Clarks Summit campus.
The featured speaker is Mel Walker, who serves as Vice President of Enrollment & External Relations at BBC&S and president of the Vision For Youth ministry. The day-long event features four sessions based on his new book, "Inter-Generational Youth Ministry: Why a Balanced View of Connecting the Generations is Essential for the Church." Aspects include:
-The Epidemic: Why are Young Adults Leaving the Church?
-The Generation Gap: How Did This Happen?
-"It Takes a Church": When Parents and the Church Collaborate
-Building an Inter-Generational Church
The book contains research and resources along with Walker's clear approach to effectively making those desperately needed connections.
The book is a valuable tool for pastors and youth leaders who want to see their young people to continue to grow and stay involved with the church after high school.
Published by Overboard Ministries and Vision For Youth Publishing, the book is available online at www.intergenerationalyouthministry.com.
Learning and Fellowship
Spring and fall Minister's Enrichment Days are important ones for many ministry leaders. Pastors and other leaders are encouraged to come experience practical ways to build effective inter-generational connections within their churches.
"I come to Minister's Enrichment Day because it does what it says - encourages and enriches," said Pastor Brendan Saunders of Lighthouse Community Church in Old Saybrook, CT.
The cost is $20 per person or $30 per couple. It includes a copy of the new book, a buffet lunch, refreshments throughout the day, and handouts.
