Yes! We are taking Rethinking Youth Ministry live this fall (October 29-30) for a weekend event at the Rickman Conference Center in Jefferson City, Missouri. This Friday-Saturday retreat, sponsored by the Missouri School of Religion, will be an opportunity to meet with this blog's authors, Jacob and Brian, along with other youth ministry colleagues in an intimate setting, surrounded by the great outdoors and a chance to get some sabbath after the rush of the start of the school year.
The main content for the retreat will be a series of interactive workshops focusing on many of the topics we touch on every week here at Rethinking Youth Ministry: mission, worship, community building, creative prayer, volunteers, Bible study, and more, all while rethinking the current paradigms for youth ministry and offering some new ways forward. You can find out more and register online here or check out a pdf flyer for the event here. We'd love to meet some of you in person and hope you can join us.
