Youth Ministry: Now. The next Youth Ministry: Now lecture will take place on Wednesday, May 7 at noon in the Old Common Room at Yale Divinity School. Dr. Yolanda Smith, Research Scholar and Lecturer in Christian Education at Yale Divinity School, will speak on “Exploring the Bible with Contemporary Youth.” Many things capture the minds and imaginations of today’s youth—Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, virtual games, flickr, tumblr and so much more. In a media and technologically savvy world, how can today’s youth find time to explore the Word of God? This workshop will explore multiple ways of teaching the Bible with contemporary youth. Attention will be given to the nature of youth, creative approaching to teaching the Bible, and equipping youth to engage the text in a way that is meaningful and transformative in their lives.
The lecture is part of the 2013-2014 Youth Ministry: Now program, a series of monthly luncheons and lectures on the foundational issues of ministry to youth.
The Youth Ministry Initiative sponsors this series in partnership with BDS.
