Say Hi.

Listen for God.

Young Adult Clergy Booth at Kansas West Annual Conference

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.
