Youth & Family Ministries
Here you will find information and support for Ministers and Spiritual Educators involved in child and teen ministry. By offering current best practices information, resources, and events, we support communities in creating and sustaining a thriving and evolving youth and family ministry program.
Call out the children...
“Our mission is not to entertain the children, but to call them out. To be always entertained is to be dwarfed and dependent. To be ‘called out’ is to follow the harmonious law of the soul’s unfoldment. Who meddles with the rosebud? What fingers are deft enough to pry open that marvel of folded beauty? We are wise enough to leave it alone to follow the glad law of its own unfolding, but our children! Have we dealt as wisely with these buds of marvelous possibilities? Have we always remembered that they, too, must quicken and unfold through the innate law of their own genius?”
