  • What Future for Christian Education?
    For too long, the church has relied on a model of Christian Education that assumed too much and taught too little.  So if how we have usually done Christian education is no longer working, than what is emerging?  People still need to know the gospel.  All ages still need to know the stories of faith.  Even research among young adults indicates a growing interest in the Bible.  So what is the future of Christian education?  Join us for a conversation about emerging models of Christian education and Christian formation.
