A Beacon of Joy 2016

Summer Symposium 2016

A Beacon of Joy in the Midst of Suffering

This weeklong course is designed for pastors, seminarians, lay leaders, and youth ministers. Each night from 6:00 to 9:00pm, we will gather for evening fellowship dinners, lectures, and workshop breakouts to name and discuss some of the adversities our youth face every day. Throughout the week, we will learn with and from one another some concrete ways combat these adversities to better nurture the foundations of joyful, flourishing lives.

Yale Divinity School’s standard charge for a Summer Study course is $450. The Youth Ministry Institute is providing each registrant for this program a $400 scholarship, reducing the tuition for each registrant to $50 for the entire weeklong program.
