Conference Opportunity for Students on Faith, Science, and Youth Ministry

Did Jesus Ride a Dinosaur?

It sounds like a silly question, but it gets at the heart of a problem that-according to Pew Research-leads a significant number of youth to abandon their faith: the perceived conflict between faith and science.

Yet, faith and science don’t have to be at odds. There are faithful, fruitful, and intellectually rigorous ways of putting the two in conversation-something that might just be a lifeline for youth.

So bring your curiosity and questions to Jesus Rode a Dinosaur: Faithful Youth Ministry in a Scientific Age, a conference on May 7-8. Speakers include: Krista Tippett, Mike Mchargue, Kendra Dean, Mark DeVries, Rozella Haydée White, Paul Douglas and Andrew Root.
