The Church = The Gathering Place: Every church wants to nurture a vibrant and vital faith in all ages and generations. This workshop will help you and your congregation create initiatives that build a culture of lifelong faith formation and community engagement. Discover how to make it happen.

Evangelism and Creating a Sacred Third Space:  Millennials and Gen Z are hungry for community, but connecting with them requires creativity. How can the Church create partnerships by meeting younger people where they are to foster sacred third spaces?

Kids These Days! Kids today are different than they were just 20 years ago, and they are way different than they were in the ‘60s, ‘70s, etc. The church has an incredible opportunity to come alongside families with children and youth in innovative and life-giving ways.
