Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Using the Build It Toolkit

The Youth Ministries Program of FGC worked for five years, from roughly 2006 to 2011, on a concern lifted up by meetings that youth and young adults feel a sense of separation from our meetings. In response, FGCs Youth Ministries Program has gathered a compilation of best practices for building youth-included community, which is presented in the book Build It! A Toolkit for Nurturing Intergenerational Spiritual Community. Leading a workshop on this book will help your meeting learn to use this resource in ways that suit the particular needs, concerns and character of your community.

 

The following point presentation may help prepare you for leading workshops on the Build It! Toolkit

Thank you for your work to nurture our intergenerational spiritual communities. Youth and young adults aren't the future of our meetings, they are the present.
