Bridging the Divide: Sending Faithful Graduates Into All Walks of Life

Presenters: Bryan Bademen, Nataleigh Waters
April 25 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm CDT
Pub 42, 7600 42nd Ave N.
New Hope, MN 55422 United States

Youth pastors, please join us for a lunch to discuss the transition from high school to college/career—especially pertinent in anticipation of the upcoming high school graduation season. Increasingly our culture encourages young people to lead compartmentalized lives, where faith is divided from school and work. Youth pastors have a significant opportunity to help students bridge that divide, equipping them to understand how their faith holds all of the pieces together as they transition from high school into college and/or career.We’ll hear thoughts on this topic from Anselm House executive director Bryan Bademen and student outreach coordinator Nataleigh Waters. Anselm House is a ministry at the University of Minnesota committed to helping students and faculty connect faith and knowledge with all of life. Come for a time of good food and conversation with other youth pastors, and explore with us how to send your graduating students out well from your ministries.

Can You Serve Jesus and Still Enjoy Your Life? (Twin Cities)

Presenter: Michael Wittmer
May 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CDT
Art House North, 793 Armstrong Avenue W
Saint Paul, MN 55102 United States

Join us for an evening with Dr. Michael Wittmer, author of Becoming Worldly Saints. If following Jesus involves a life of sacrifice and suffering, is it wrong for a Christian to seek purpose and joy in this world? Many Christians sense tension between their desires to enjoy life in this world--the beauty of God's creation, the rich love of deep relationships with others--and the reality that this world is fallen and broken, in need of redemption. How can we embrace and thrive in the tension between enjoying creation and promoting redemption? Dr. Wittmer believes the answer is by living out our God-given purposes. Come learn what it means to be a "worldly saint".
