The ConNext Summit creates a space to inspire progressive Christian faith formation leaders as they reflect together, form networks, and cultivate innovative and sustainable ministries with children, youth, and families. The 2019 summit is a place for clergy, lay staff members, and volunteer leaders to come together for connection, learning, inspiration and renewal.
This year’s gathering will feature Grace Ji-Sun Kim as keynote presenter. Grace is an Associate Professor of Religion at the Earlham School of Religion and author of sixteen books, including Intersectional Theology: An Introductory Guide and The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to the Holy Spirit. The summit will also feature musician Sara Thomsen as ritual leader. In addition to her solo work, Sara is a weaver of song and community singing.
Grace and Sara will help summit participants explore the vitally important work of recovering the Holy Spirit within our lives and in our various ministry settings. Through worship, shared spiritual practices, workshops, and rich conversation, ConNext participants will explore how recovering and reclaiming the Spirit can enliven and transform the church’s ministry with children, youth, and families.
