Dr. Anne E. Streaty Wimberly on Demands and Promises of Ministry with Black Youth

June 2, 2014, 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Overview

“Keep It Real: Demands and Promises of Ministry with Black Youth”

Dr. Anne E. Streaty Wimberly delivers a lecture entitled, “Keep It Real: Demands and Promises of Ministry with Black Youth.” Assuring relevant and transforming ministry with today’s youth is one of the most important and difficult tasks of the Christian church.  To accomplish this task with black youth, leaders must convey the promise of Christian living in tandem with working to counter negative messages these youth receive from a dominant and often racially unfriendly culture, personal crises, and generational separation.  Dr. Wimberly will explore youth ministry leaders’ imperative attention to 3 Cs of urban youth ministry – Context, Critical Content, and Connection – that enables these leaders to ‘keep it real.’
