Certificate in Faith Formation

Vibrant Faith University is partnering with our synod’s Center for Faith Formation, to offer a discounted certification in 21st Century Faith Formation, to congregational leaders in our synod. The online coursework, coupled with a local cohort group(s), shepherded by local synod leaders, will equip candidates of the course to accompany their congregations in spiritual development, faith formation practices, and congregational renewal. To learn more about the course, costs, course structure, and to find registration links, visit our website at: http://www.lss-elca.org/r3-congregational-renewal/congregational-renewal-entrees/r3-spiritual-renewal-certificate-program/

A Gathering Handbook

Have you grabbed the new “Official Gathering Handbook: Tips & Tricks for Adult Leaders?” Designed to help the veteran or first-time youth advisor, as they prepare for the ELCA Youth Gathering, this handbook has a wealth of helpful information. Available as a digital download, you can also purchase them from Old Lutheran for $10. However, I have purchased 60, to make available to congregational leaders who need one, at NO cost to you. I will be distributing them at our upcoming Youth Gathering pre-registration planning meetings this Spring, but if you need one sooner, simply text or email and we’ll figure out a way to get one to you.

Youthworkers Extravaganza in Louisville, KY

It’s time to register for the annual ELCA Youth Ministry Network’s annual convention, called the Extravaganza or “E”. E 2017, will be held in Louisville, KY, on January 20-23, 2017, with Intensive Care Courses offered on January 19th. This is one of the closest cities to Lower Susquehanna, where the annual event will be held, as it makes it’s three year rotation around the country, from eastern third, to central third, to the west coast.

e2017The “E” brings together some of the top youth and family ministry educators, researchers, speakers and practitioners, all in one place for one long-weekend event, and offers large group, workshops, and lots of opportunity for casual conversation with peers. A large resource hall includes exhibitors from across the spectrum of youth ministry resourcing and vendors.

This synod’s Office for Children, Youth & Family Ministry has scholarship money to assist you with participating, and the “E” itself offers some full event scholarships to first-time attendees. The early-bird DISCOUNT expires on September 1. Register between now and September 1, and pay $280.00, while after September 1, the fee goes to the standard $325.00. If you are not an ELCA Youth Ministry Network member, you will need to pay a small fee to join the Network, but the benefits far outweigh the fees. Network Regional Facilitator, Sharon McCall Hardel, is also a youth ministry here in our synod, at Trinity Lutheran in Chambersburg, and is a great resource to assist with information on the Network, the “E,” and on scholarship opportunities.

Presenter, author, and passionate social justice speaker Shane Claiborne feeds our hunger for justice and mercy at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, 30 West Chestnut Street, Hanover, PA.

You may remember Shane from the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering main stage, where his stories of real life, front line social advocacy and justice, moved many youth to take action in their own communities.
His books, “The Irresistible Revolution” and “Jesus for President” reveal Shane’s passion for the Gospel and for living it out in ways that affect a change for those struggling with poverty, the outcast, and those on our societal fringes.
