ACYM Lecture

Ministry to children and youth is effective when it is grounded and rooted in a rich and deep understanding of God and Theology. When we understand our story, our heritage and when we wrestle with who we understand God to be and what that says about us; we begin to outwork that in the way we work with young people every day. (Youthscape 2018) In 2020, the ACYMC Lecture will look to help leaders to think theologically about the cultural challenges that young people face in today’s society.
