Hello everyone, and thanks for your great comments!

I thought I should post an update of what has been happening since I first posted this article. You can download a copy of the manifesto that was put together by the young adult leaders that attended the roundtable discussion at the end of August 31st here:

Feel free to print it, email it, and share it with anyone who might be interested!

Also, here is the latest Banner article chronicling the event:

Hi Sharon,

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Currently we are making plans to co-host a leadership/spiritual retreat with Calvin College. This will function as sort of a pilot event; if it goes well we hope to reproduce the success at all of the affiliated schools--Redeemer, Dordt, and Trinity--and make it an anual event.

We also hope to be able to support secular campus ministries by providing their student leaders with some form of leadership training workshops.

Thanks for your interest!

Let me know if you have any more questions.

This would be fantastic! i would also suggest that this type of resource should inlude more multisensory ideas, rather than just digital media or banners. This could include things like concrete props, smells, and sounds. These types of things make the message/scripture come alive so that people--especially the younger generations--can remember and apply these truths to their lives.

There is a great book on things like this which would be great for a pastor and worship committee to read, its called The Power of Multisensory Preaching and Teaching by Rick Blackwood. Here is the amazon link:

Great stuff! The Leadership Exchange (a new denominational ministry) is encouraging young adults to do their part in creating lasting change in the church. Check out our manifesto to see what we have been up to :
