Virginia Conference Christian Educators Fellowship
A Day Apart in Christian Education
Thursday, October 20, 2011 9:30 a.m. -3:30 p.m.
Duncan Memorial UMC
201 Henry Street
Ashland, VA 23005
Led by the Rev. David Hindman, pastor of Duncan Memorial UMC, and former campus minister at The College of William and Mary. David will lead discussion from a presentation at the Florida Conference in June 2011,
entitled “Shift Happens: Transforming Sons and Daughters of God in the 21st Century.”
In our post-modern, post-Christian context we can learn much from the early church’s practices of Christian formation. How do we form Christians in our new missional
context? Together we’ll see how the landscape for spiritual formation, mission and ministry has changed significantly; learn how the early church prepared persons for Christian initiation; and discuss what we might learn from our spiritual forebears for ministry
today, especially for youth and adult confirmation and disciple-making.
