In this pilot season, we're sharing stories and learnings from the relationships and research we’ve developed over the past three years through a grant initiative called The Log College Project. Meet the faith leaders and researchers who are helping the church reimagine the entire vocation and practice of youth ministry in the 21st Century.
In this bonus episode, you are invited to listen in on a staff meeting of the Institute for Youth Ministry at Princeton Theological Seminary. Host Megan DeWald is joined by Rev. Abigail Visco Rusert and Carmelle Beaugelin to reflect on the stories from this first season and to discuss the relationships and themes that have emerged.
How can an affluent, high-achieving, suburban congregation foster authentic relationships among stressed and isolated young people? In this episode, meet the Rev. Meredith Keseley of Abiding Presence Lutheran Church in Burke, Virginia, and listen to the Rev. Aqueelah Ligonde, as they discern the Holy Spirit's transformative presence in blossoming relationships.
