Dr. Mark R. Gornik, Dr. Janice A. McLean-Farrell, and Dean Maria Liu Wong on Practicing Youth Ministry in the Global City

June 4, 2014, 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Overview

“The Next Generation: Practicing Youth Ministry in the Global City”

Dr. Mark R. Gornik, Dr. Janice A. McLean Farrell, and Dean Maria Liu Wong deliver a lecture entitled, “The Next Generation: Practicing Youth Ministry in the Global City.” This session will examine the practices of youth ministry in the global city, especially among African, Asian, West Indian, and Latin America churches.  As new and globally linked churches in the United States are established, the transmission of faith between generations is a primary concern for parents and church leaders.  Given this concern and the context of urban life, what are the opportunities and challenges for youth ministry in the city?  This session will be based on the findings and ongoing activities of the Next Generation Project conducted by City Seminary of New York.
