“We hope this gathering will be a time when leaders who are new to this work as well as those who have longstanding roots in this ministry will meet and connect with one another in order to be nourished and nurtured in ministry with young adults,” explained the Rev. Shannon Kelly, Episcopal Church Officer for Young Adult and Campus Ministry.
Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry will join conference participants on Monday to preach and discuss the importance of young adult and campus ministry.
Registration, housing information, and further details are available here. Registration does not include transportation to and from the conference. Registration deadline is June 5. Subsidized rates are available for current students or Episcopal Service Corps members.
In addition to CULTIVATE: Resilient Hope, there will be a Pre-Conference on Sunday, June 25 from 2 pm to 6 pm. The Pre-Conference is geared toward those who are new to ministry (in the last three years) and those who want to explore some of the basics of doing ministry with young adults.
