Youth Ministry in an Age of Anxiety
What is it?
Teaching from a leading expert in the morning, and a guided workshop in the afternoon, all geared to provide you with the resources to equip your team to respond, help care for, and build resilience in your students, equip your leaders, and inform your parents.
Stressed Out: Pushing Back on the Epidemic of Teen Anxiety
Jesus says to his followers, “Do not be anxious.” Is that even possible for students in today’s world of rampant anxiety? Anxiety has reached epidemic proportions among our kids. Anxiety is now the #1 health-care concern on college campuses. Even pre-schoolers are feeling more pressure than that experienced by previous generations of their peers. What is anxiety and how is it affecting today’s children and teens? What are it’s causes? And how can we step in the gap to provide ministry responses that ease the pressure, calming kids for the sake of the Gospel. In this practical and hope-filled Pre-Conference Intensive, Walt will lead you through an introduction to this destructive cultural force that undermines human flourishing, and offer practical ministry responses.
