From Anxiety to Love: A Contemplative Approach to Youth Ministry

Saturday, March 17, 2018, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

learn to support youth and yourself in spiritual growth 

spend the day with Mark Yaconelli

Teenagers make adults anxious. Adults make teenagers anxious. God makes everyone anxious. Maybe that’s why youth ministry suffers such high amounts of burnout? Based on ten years of research in the Youth Ministry and Spirituality Project (and Mark’s book Contemplative Youth Ministry), this workshop engages participants in creative exercises, contemplative practices, teaching sessions, discussion, and tested strategies to help churches, parents, and youth workers develop ministries that transition from anxiety to love, isolation to community, passivity to compassionate action. 

For parents, clergy, youth workers and volunteers – don’t miss out on this opportunity to strengthen yourself and your ability to be a spiritual resource for young people in your life. 

Co-sponsored by Church Divinity School of the Pacific, Province VIII of The Episcopal Church, and the Dioceses of California, Northern California, El Camino Real, and San Joaquin.
