Science and Youth Ministry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The young people to whom we minister find themselves living in many different worlds, confronting distinct and sometime opposed ideologies, world views, and practices. One of these direct oppositions is the church's ideas of faith and their school's teaching and commitment to science. Young people often come to us wondering if faith and science are in deadly competition, and if not, then how can things like Genesis and evolution fit together? Do faith and science really oppose each other? And how might we engage in such conversations with our young people? The seminar will present the findings of the John Templeton Foundation research project, with a panel and room to discuss what is needed to help a conversation between faith and science happen in our youth groups.
