COMING SOON... what happens when you put nine doctoral candidates focusing on the spiritual development of young people in conversation with local youth ministry experts? You're the expert, you tell me.
On March 27th, UPC is hosting an event call "Coming Soon..." Jeff Keuss will open the event with a few remarks and some framing comments. Then each of the doctoral candidates will share in 3-5 minutes what they are researching and why they think it's important for the future of youth ministry. Kenda Creasy Dean, youth ministry professor from Princeton Seminary and who also advises the Timothy Scholars, will make a few observations based on the short vignettes and contribute her own thoughts. She will then open up the conversation to all the attendees. Our hope is that we can hear how what we are researching might be received by local area youth professionals/workers.
The event will begin at 2:00 and officially end at 4:00 (but could carry on a little). It will be hosted at UPC in Calvin Hall, which is right next to the Kiosk as you enter the building. I want to encourage you to invite as many students as you think might be interested. It's an open event for everyone, so there is no limit.
