- Theology of Ministry with Young People
I found my best description of the my way of living theology with youth and young adults in the words of Charles Wesley: ‘Unite the pair so oft disjoint, reason and vital piety.’ It has always been the most fruitful thing for myself to ask questions and strive for a deep understanding of God’s acting in our world and with his creation. To create freedom for those in bonds (whatever those might be) is what I understand as gospel.
- How will connecting with me support your ministry?
I assume that I have some good oversight of various ways of working with youth and young adults on different levels (congregation, region, annual conference, central conference and even worldwide). I have started and run (as well as ended) different projects. My ministry is an interesting mixture of work together with young people as well as working in various structures that help to enable work with young people. I also did research work on young people’s spirituality which might be helpful. And I think that I am still (even after 38 years of lifetime) very energetic and open for new ways of developing ideas and projects together with young people
