The Yale Youth Ministry Institute at Yale Divinity School, in conjunction with the Yale Center for Faith & Culture, is pleased to present a free Lunch & Lecture Series: “Why Youth Ministry? Nurturing Joy in an Uncertain Age,” featuring leading practical theologians and youth ministers.
Dr. Tony Campolo and Mr. Shane Claiborne will deliver a lecture entitled, “Abounding Joy: Grace and Its Consequences.” This lecture will explore how grace not only creates joy through mystical conversion experiences but will also examine the joy that arises when young people engage in evangelism and social justice efforts. Dr. Campolo is professor emeritus of sociology at Eastern University and a former faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Claiborne writes and speaks around the world about peacemaking, social justice, and Jesus, and is the author of numerous books including Executing Grace. He is the visionary founder of The Simple Way in Philadelphia and director of Red Letter Christians.
