The mission of Seattle Presbytery is to participate, in word and deed, in God’s transforming work through the Gospel of Jesus Christ: †by strengthening the witness and mission of our congregations and members and by building strong partnerships with each other and the larger Christian community.

Interested in Partnering for Chap Clark Seminar?

Seattle Presbytery

Calvin Presbyterian Church in Shoreline, WA would like to host a Chap Clark Seminar on Saturday, September 26, 2015.

Calvin proposes to host this seminar with your help through partnership and sponsorship of Presbyterian churches in the area.  As a partner, your church’s staff will attend free of charge and your church’s name will be included on all promotion materials.  The cost of the seminar is $3,500.  This expense will be covered by ten Presbyterian churches partnering at $250 each, and approximately 75-80 paying registrants.

Our vision is to invite all churches and their staff and congregants, as well as publicizing broadly to schools, Younglife, parents and others who work with children and youth. 

We are proposing the following fee schedule for non-sponsoring church staff and others: 

$15 for church staff and pastors

$10 for parents

$20 for both seminar sessions

See seminar session details below.
Event Details
Join other parents, pastors, youth and children’s ministry staff as we explore what it means to take seriously the spiritual formation of children and adolescents.  Chap Clark, Fuller Seminary Professor of Youth, Family, and Culture, and best-selling author, will provide training and tools to help us understand the adolescent experience, and faithfully journey with children and youth as they become followers of Jesus. 

Two seminars will be offered:

10am – 12 noon:  For clergy and church formation leaders to discern ways we can better minister to families and equip parents to walk with their children and adolescents on a journey of faith.

1pm – 3pm:  For parents to learn more about the world of adolescents and discover ways to be more intentional about faith formation at home. 

Karen Kirkman, Director of Family Ministries at Calvin Presbyterian Church would love to talk with you about this seminar with Chap Clark and answer any of your questions.  Her e-mail is, or call her at (206) 542-6181.
