Youth Ministry is viewed by the church in a variety of ways and the various opinions about the role and place of youth ministry in the local church are as diverse as the people who express them. Dean Borgman notes that youth ministry is a remedial function, necessary because all he other systems that should support the holistic development of young people are in trouble as well. This webinar will explore the current youth ministry landscape and the challenges of developing a contextual approach to discipleship that is good for the local church. The webinar is designed to allow ample time for questions and is guided by the mantra: What is good for our young people is good for our adults as well. Presented by Youth Ministry Task Force members Lynn Barger Elliott and Darwin Glassford.
