Black Youth Speak Out, Churches Reach Out

 

“For surely, I know that plans I have for you says the Lord, plans for your welfare, and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.”             -Jeremiah 29:11 (NRSV)


The Youth Hope-Builders Academy of the Interdenominational Theological Center welcomes you to our National Conference on Youth Ministry in the Black Church. The conference will present and prompt participants’ response to key information from a national study on youth who are disconnected from the church, why they are disconnected, and what they say churches need to do to RE-CONNECT. A high school youth huddle will convene on Saturday and explore and craft a manifesto on their role in re-connection activities.

 

Conference Highlights

 

 

  • Youth leadership in Worship and the Arts

  • Dynamic Workshops

  • Outstanding leadership from selected Model churches across the United States

  • Key information provided from a national study on youth disconnected from the church

  • Powerful presentations sharing the voices of today’s youth about their need for the church

  • Receive hard-hitting advice from youth to churches on HOW TO RE-CONNECT

  • Written materials and tools to take home, and much more!
