Stewardship and adults under age 40 are the compelling focus of a Holy Conversation hosted by Brite Divinity School (http://brite.edu/) May 21-23 at the Bass Conference Center in the Harrison Building, 2925 Princeton Street, Fort Worth, Texas. “Let’s talk about connecting the church to young people and helping everyone connect their values to their spending,” reads the invitation from the Center for Faith and Giving, convener of the conversation.
The presentations will be offered Wednesday evening, May 21 at 7pm; Thursday May 22 9am to 5pm; and Friday May 23, 8:30am to noon. Nathan Dungan (Share, Save, Spend) will be a keynote presenter. Warren Carter, Brite professor of New Testament, will offer a Bible study “Stewardship as Empire Resistance.” Katie Hays, pastor of Galileo Church in Mansfield, will be a featured preacher.
Leaders and participants will engage in a conversation about how the church can positively impact younger adults and their relationship with money in particular, and the church in general. The event will also feature a panel – composed of participants who have been born after 1980 – in order to hear from young adults themselves what they are actually thinking.
