The blog will probably be pretty quiet this week. I am going to be heading out for Pepperdine on Monday and I plan on absorbing as much as I can. In all likelihood I will throw some helpful things up via twitter through the week. I am going to be presenting two classes with Eric Brown entitled, “Where have all the 20s & 30s gone?: Practical ministry to a missing generation.” (Thursday and Friday at 8:30)
Thursday – Who they are, what they value/believe that has contributed to their departure from many congregations (the growing culture gap)
Friday – How to bridge the gap and reach out to this missing generation in ways that are meaningful and effective. It is hard to make disciples of people who don’t know (or even like).
I will also be doing a panel discussion on Thursday at 9:45 called, “Where are we going? A Conversation with Young Ministers on the Changing Nature of Church and Ministry”
If you are going this year I hope to see you there! If you want some good reading this week have a read through the Gospel of John 🙂
