I just received an email today from the folks behind the Children, Youth and a New Kind of Christianity Conference – notifying me that the fee for the conference will be increasing on February 1. The more I read about this conference, the more I’m excited for it and can’t wait to spend a few days thinking theologically about children’s and youth ministry. This was their update:
Register now for Children, Youth and a New Kind of Christianity and take advantage of the early bird rate of only $189. (Don’t forget that this includes lunches, dinners, and receptions). The registration rate will increase on February 1, so don’t miss out on your chance to save! Visit http://children-youth.com/register/ today.
And while you’re at the website, check out the new primer (http://children-youth.com/primer/) featuring the work and ideas of CYNKC contributors, including John Westerhoff, Brian McLaren, Almeda Wright, Ivy Beckwith, Joyce Mercer and Dori Baker, Shane Claiborne, Tony Campolo, and more! Get to know their ideas before you meet them at the conference.
This primer is a really great resource of articles about the topics that we’ll be discussing more in-depth during the conference. I think I’m most excited to learn more about children’s ministries and what people are finding to be the most effective way to reach children today in our churches.
