Join us for a Hatch-a-thon on February 25-27, 2016 at Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. Join others who are nursing an entrepreneurial idea for youth ministry or the church in general, and who want to “test drive” the idea to see if it has legs! Register today or see http://www.lakejunaluska.com, for further information as well.
The future of youth ministry starts… with pie. Try Pie never wavers from its primary purpose—helping young people grow closer to Christ and their communities, one pie at a time—but they also soar where most missional entrepreneurs get stumped: they have genuinely integrated mission and business without cheapening either one. What an honor that Try Pie has chosen to partner with Ministry Incubators as they expand. We have learned so much from this joyous little ministry—which I am betting won’t be little for very long.
Are you nursing an entrepreneurial idea for ministry, but don’t know how to get it started (much less fund it)? Is your church ready to move a social enterprise idea down the field that funds other aspects of ministry? Could you use the wisdom of others to test-drive an idea for missional entrepreneurship–or are you just curious about what’s involved in starting a sustainable nonprofit or for-profit ministry? The Institute for Youth Ministry is partnering with Ministry Incubators to offering a Hatch-a-thon in March.
Come join us for the 2016 Princeton Youth Forum, April 26-29. See details and registration information below.
Youth ministers were born to dream! The headlines may paint a grim picture for the future of the Church, but youth ministry has long been a place for innovation, entrepreneurship, and vision. It’s time to imagine new ways of being church—to dream big and be open to the work of the Spirit. Where do we go from here? What’s working? What’s not? Where do we find the abundant life of Christ in our lives and communities?
The Princeton Forum on Youth Ministry is for youth ministers who are excited about new possibilities. Come talk with Mark DeVries and Kenda Dean who want to help you develop your new ministry idea through Ministry Incubators. Connect with Marlon Hall and the amazing things happening at the Awakenings Movement. Meet friends old and new. Worship and rejoice. Revitalize your soul.
