Our Keynote Speaker this year is Dr. Mark Hicks, Angus MacLean Professor of Religious Education and Director of the Fahs Collaborative Laboratory for Innovation in Faith Formation at Meadville Lombard Seminary. Dr. Hicks' address is entitled “Teaching As Spiritual Practice." His presentation aims to help teachers see themselves as capable of opening up spiritual spaces for their children and youth. A workshop will follow the keynote in which Dr. Hicks will use the notion of “teaching race/ethnicity” to children as an object lesson. Participants will get to put into practice ideas from the morning's keynote.
In addition Dr. Hicks' Keynote address, we will have wide-ranging workshops designed to help strengthen your Children and Youth ministries, and support your staff and volunteers. A brochure of workshops and programs will be made available later in the summer.
Cost for the conference is $50.00 for individuals and $40.00 per person for teams of 4 or more. We encourage congregations to send teams. Registration includes a light breakfast and lunch.
