First Third Dialogue explores the power of immersion learning

Building faith alongside those in the first third of life can be a challenge. On Nov. 26-27, Luther Seminary will host the dialogue, Why Can't My Church Be More Like Camp? to discuss the unique needs of children, teens and young adults.

This dialogue is for experts and practitioners who are concerned with ministry issues in the first third of life. The conference will delve into the power of immersion learning in faith formation. Lectures and discussion groups will focus on The Power of Awe, Immediate Experiences of God and more.

The event will feature Mike King, president of YouthFront and executive editor of Immerse Journal, as well as Paul Hill, executive director of Vibrant Faith Ministries and president of Lutheran Outdoor Ministries.

Early bird registration is $125 before Nov. 12. Following that, the registration fee is $150.

The Center for the First Third Ministry at Luther Seminary equips ministry leaders and congregations to faithfully and effectively minister with children, youth, young adults and families.
