PASTORAL CARE WITH
YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS
with ISAAC MUNDY
Friday, Feb. 13 - Saturday, Feb. 14, 2015
WORKSHOP: "How do we attract the young people?" is a cry often heard in mainline denominations in North America. Yet when we look to a younger generation as a means to the end of institutional survival, we can sometimes forget that youth and young adults are more than the future of the church: they are children of God living in the present who long for relationships of care.
In this winter's focus on practice event "More than the future", Rev. Isaac Mundy will explore how we in the church can respond in unique ways to these places of longing, and will work with workshop participants to discover ways that they might build meaningful pastoral relationships with youth and young adults in the congregations and wider communities where they are called to serve. A special focus of the session will look at the possibilities and challenges of creating connections of care through social media platforms.
LEADER: Isaac Mundy is the Minister of Youth, Young Adults and Families at Siloam United Church in London, Ontario, a site partnering with the United Church of Canada EDGE Network on an innovative grant project focusing on first third ministries.
Isaac is an ordained minister in the United Church of Canada who has served both in rural and urban pastoral charges. His experiences working in the Spiritual Care department of the Montreal Children's Hospital, as well as his studies focusing on the intersection of social media and pastoral care have been deeply formative in his approach to relationship building with youth in the Church.
