It can be difficult for a youth worker who identifies as “progressive” or “liberal” to find a tribe. Most events, conferences, camps, and curricula cater to evangelicals. But as progressive theology gains more of a foothold in the church, we need a place to gather as well — a tribe to meet with, and new ideas to stoke our imaginations.
For that reason, The JoPa Group and Montreat Conference Center are hosting the fourth annual Progressive Youth Ministry Conference. We are committed to presenting a diverse line-up of speakers, fresh ideas for the theory and practice of youth ministry, and space for you to share your voice as well. In this, our fourth year, we are focusing on the theme "Changing Hearts and Minds: Reclaiming the Spirituality of Metanoia." Plenary sessions will cover the topics of race, the environment, and spirituality. And seminars and Open Source Time will further enhance the experience of all attendees.
