SHAPING THE DREAMS OF THIS GENERATION
One-day Training Conferences for all Christian youth and children’s leaders
Young people dream.
Caught up as consumers in a secular society poisoned by a toxic mix of materialism and greed they have few positive influences to help shape their dreams.
That's where you come in...
During the training conferences we will help you to:
- Gain an insight into the forces that shapethe dreams and worldviews of our young people.
- Discover how to help young people challenge the secular worldviews they pick up.
- Be challenged to see how we can engage with the Bible in a fresh and exciting way.
Be envisioned to help young people see how the story of God can help re-shape their dreams.
Main speaker: We are delighted that Mark Roques (resident tutor at the West Yorkshire School of Christian Studies) is joining us at each venue.
Mark is a writer and storyteller who has spent many years in education. For eleven years he taught Philosophy & Religious Studies at Prior Park College in Bath where he developed a unique Christian worldview course that combined film, music, story-telling and subversive role plays.
Mark is the author of Curriculum Unmasked: Towards a Christian Understanding of education, The Good, The Bad and The Misled: True Stories Reflecting Different World Views for Use in Secondary Religious Education and Fields of God: Football and the Kingdom of God.
These events are open to anyone aged 16 or over who works with any age group from 8 upwards.
