Young Adults (Ages 18-35)

“Lifespan Faith Engagement” means accompanying those who are coming of age in a dying and transforming world to be meaning-makers and agents of change. We are here to support religious professionals and lay leaders of all ages to do just that.

We support your congregational ministries and your efforts to connect across congregations by offering funding and consultations with our staff. Find your connection in the sidebar.

Congregational Ministry

We provide support in the following areas with a diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging lens. We also help you build your network of peers, colleagues and professionals who can go even deeper with you.

Connecting Across Congregations

Whether you’re a youth, emerging adult or adult, a lay leader or professional, an old-timer or a newcomer, we can be a conduit for you to find supportive peers, partners, and mentors to fortify your innovative ventures involving youth or emerging adults.

Multiplatform Trainings

We can collaborate with you and local colleagues to execute in person and online learning experiences for youth and/or adults on pastoral care, community building, leadership development and safety. Connect with your Regional Liaison to make this happen.
