Helping Teens Tell Their Stories of Faith

Tuesday March 6, 2018

Featuring Amanda Drury, PhD., Indiana Wesleyan and David Dark, PhD., Belmont University

We love it when a student "Gets It" in our youth ministries. But what is the "It" they are actually getting? We are going to look at the importance of helping students articulate their faith in our youth ministries, the "Why?" of it, and the "How?" to help your students articulate their faith.
