3rd Tuesday Conversations  are monthly gatherings of friends.  They are great continuing education events.  They are chances to hear from, and interact with experts in the field.  3TC conversations are free for Network members.

Guest:  Rozella White & Josh Graber
Topic:   Leadership
Date:    May 20, 2014
Time:    1:00pm-1:30pm (central time)

About Our Topic:

The "normal" progression of graduation into college, the work force or the military isn't nearly as normal as it used to be. More and more young people are opting for an alternative year, sometimes also known as a "gap year" program.

These years can be an opportunity to discern, to grow and to find one's sense of vocation before moving on to the next chapter of life.

More and more alternative year programs are being introduced, many which have connections within the life of the church.

At our May 3TC, we'll be joined by Rozella White, Program Director for Young Adult Ministries within the ELCA, and Rev. Josh Graber, who directs the "ALT Year" program, to lead a conversation about the growth of these programs, and about how we might support and talk with our young people about these ministry opportunities.

The ELCA Youth Ministry Network exists to strengthen and empower youth ministry leaders in service to Christ
