if you follow my blog you will know i am a fan of kenda creasy dean's writing on youth ministry - see my comments on practising passion. well the good news is that she is doing a training day at oxford centre for youth ministry on may 16. amazingly i can't find any blurb on it on the cym site! but oxford youth works have some info and you can download a booking form. here's the info...
Kenda Creasy Dean is the author of Practicing Passion: Youth and the Quest for a Passionate Church (Eerdmans), co-author (with Ron Foster) of The Godbearing Life: The Art of Soul-Tending in Youth Ministry (Youth Speacialties/Zondervan) and co-editor (with Chap Clark & Dave Rahn) Starting Right: Thinking Theologically about youth ministry (Youth Specialities/Zondervan).
