Youth workers to explore “The Changing Face of Youth Ministry” with Rachel S. Gerber
by VMC Staff
In the movie, The Fellowship of the Ring, Galadriel the elf queen says a classic line about the changes happening in Middle Earth. She says to Frodo, “The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air.” In a similar way this is also true about our time: the world around us has changed. Our youth are growing up in a society that in many ways looks, acts, and interacts differently than the ones we grew up in. But have our approaches to youth ministry adapted to this new generation?
Speaker: Rachel S. Gerber is Mennonite Church USA Denominational Minister of Youth and Young Adults. She will set the context to how the youth of today approach faith and the church, and provide opportunities for sharing and reflection on approaches for youth ministry with this new generation.
