View outline (PDF)
Week 1: July 9-13, 2018
This course will explore the spirituality, theology, and practices surrounding holistic faith formation with children and youth. By digging deep into the purposes, goals, and presuppositions we carry with us into our experiences of ministry, students will learn about and generate best practices for walking alongside young people on the adventure of discipleship. In particular, this course will help students re-imagine children’s and youth ministry by exploring fresh perspectives and sharing innovative ideas.
