The theme of this years convention is, Beyond! The goal, is to think and imagine student ministry in the years to come? What will student ministry look like? How do we address the ever-changing, ever-evolving culture? How do we minister to a growing generation of media saturated, technologically savy, experience driven, and boundary breaking students? It's questions like these that have lead to the new http://www.nywcbeyond.com/!
I recently had the opportunity to write a short piece for the new NYWCBeyond.com website! As part of this years theme, YS is trying to engage attendees with some pre-convention thinking by posting some conversational topics that surface as common issues within student ministry. As we think about youth ministry and beyond, the topics are to help us think about what we do in youth ministry, to challenge us to talk, dream, and seek God's wisdom as we ask, what's next?
If you're wondering, I tackled the topic of boring church.
