“Teenagers make adults anxious. Adults make teenagers anxious. God makes everyone anxious. Maybe that’s why youth ministry suffers such high amounts of burnout?

Based on ten years of research in the Youth Ministry and Spirituality Project (and Mark’s book Contemplative Youth Ministry), this workshop engages participants in creative exercises, contemplative practices, teaching sessions, discussion, and tested strategies to help churches, parents, and youth workers develop ministries that transition from anxiety to love, isolation to community, passivity to compassionate action.”

During the day there will be a gathering of Church and Youth Leaders for a day of deep teaching and application by one of the leading thinkers in Youth Ministry on the planet.

In the evening there is an open invitation to all volunteers and leaders to join together for a refreshing evening of storytelling, inspiration and worship. 

The event is being organised by Gen2 (Diocese of Peterborough), Souster Youth Charity and the Salvation Army.
