Last week, I was part of the Kansas West Annual Conference. It was a great conference. I tried a new thing and reserved a booth for young clergy. This had several positive outcomes, including:
- Gathered a (perhaps) comprehensive list of young adult clergy within the annual conference
- Increased awareness of young adults in ministry in the conference
- Created space to share words of wisdom about ministry
- Created space to share dreams for the denomination
- Shared information about 40 Days of Prayer and Exploration 2009
I felt that it was a significant step in encouraging young people in ministry within Kansas West.
