2018 Youth Ministry Symposium with Mark Yaconelli

Sixth Annual Youth Ministry Symposium
From Anxiety to Love: A Contemplative Approach to Youth Ministry 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. The experience blends aspects of a personal spiritual retreat day with learning about child and youth spiritual development processes.

This course is a set of video recordings from the 2018 YMS on March 17.
