Event Description

Come join a conversation with Brad Griffin (Fuller Youth Institute, coauthor of Sticky Faith) on the intersection of faith, doubt, and vocational formation in teenagers and young adults. Backed by a decade of research on what helps young people stick with faith into adulthood, this workshop will explore questions surrounding the role of doubt and failure in faith, the importance of intergenerational community, and how parents and other adults can help teenagers explore their vocational journeys rather than sabotaging them with performance-driven identities.

Registration includes a light breakfast buffet and lunch in the Bethel University Dining Center immediately following the event.

The event program begins at 9:00 am but registration opens at 8:00 am - come early to network with fellow youth workers and pastors.
