"Transformation Through Pilgrimage: Planning and Leading Mission Trips that Build More than Houses"
Rev. Skip Masback delivers a lecture entitled, “Transformation Through Pilgrimage: Planning and Leading Mission Trips that Build More than Houses.” Youth long for experiences that will take them outside of their cramped, every day experience and connect them with something larger than themselves, with the transcendent love of God. In this session we’ll explore the theory and praxis of planning and leading mission trips as pilgrimages. We’ll explore the nuts and bolts “best practices” that prepare the ground for mission trips in which our young people are “pilgrims not tourists, learners not teachers, listeners not talkers and receivers not givers.”
