Theology of Ministry with Young People

Young people are some of the most creative, dedicated, and optimistic disciples of Jesus Christ. I understand them to be God’s prophets among us, helping transform both the church and world.  Ministry with young people should follow and support the innovation they offer, making disruptive discipleship happen in our shared lives together as United Methodists.

How will connecting with me support your ministry?

I have a deep respect for the interconnected wisdom generated by transformative relationships among leaders in the church.  So, I bring my gifts and desire to share in that wisdom, but I also come as a learner, listening for your wisdom and how it can help me grow in leading ministries with young people as well. I hope this understanding of mutual learning is a primary quality that will make me a good field guide for those interested in what I have to offer.
