Looking for some next step discussions and reflections in your youth ministry and spiritual formation work? Interested in the Certification in Youth Ministry and Certification in Spiritual Formation programs at BeADisciple? instructors Lori Richey and Jim Reiter have created a space where those who work with young people and those who serve in spiritual formation might explore each other’s worlds. This two-week course invites participants to explore the intersection of youth ministry and spiritual formation, with an eye to the person of the minister as well as those to whom we minister. Learners will be equipped with many ideas for encouraging spiritual growth in young people while increasing their own understanding of both disciplines. Following an opening period of introduction to the general fields of Youth Ministry and Spiritual Formation, learners will explore key topics from the perspective of each discipline through video and discussion board content. Daily 45–60-minute workshops will explore topics such as Creating a Rule for Faithful Living, Spiritual Companionship & Mentoring, and much more. The Symposium will wrap up with a Live panel discussion featuring panelists from both areas of focus. This is sure to be an encouraging time of learning and discovering together how each arena can enhance and enrich the other. A live panel discussion will be held during the last week of the course, but a taped version will be available for viewing afterwards.
