Re-Imagining Children's and Youth Ministry: Webinar Presentation

2015, 58:07 min
As faith formation workers, we often sense that the ways we engage in Christian education today is, well…just not working great. Something seems amiss and we aren’t quite sure why, and more so, what to do about it. Dave Csinos, president and founder of Faith Forward, graced us with an insightful webinar on Tuesday, August 25th.

Dave laid the history and groundwork for how Sunday school and “formal” religious education came to be in our churches (a relatively recent phenomena in history), and led us into the current present, inviting us to consider what it might mean to engage in new ways intergenerationally today. Our children and youth have so much to teach us–they themselves are spiritual beings, who already think theologically –but how often do we miss it because we don’t have eyes to see/ears to hear these voices. Instead we laugh during ‘children’s time’ at a cute response. We dismiss questions and rush them to programs and out of ‘big people’ church. We also talked about how to empower and engage parents in their primary role of forming faith with their children. What does it mean to re-imagine faith formation today and to be courageous to try something new for the sake of us all?
