“Not Just High-5’s & Fist Bumps”
Time: 17:00 Saturday
Where: Pinewood Dining
Style: Interactive Workshop
Explore a variety of multisensory ways to engage youth in meaningful faith formation through games, initiatives and activities. This isn’t about a fun game and a smile, but treating every moment as a teachable one. What games to use, and when. Then using that to form great questions and metaphors for whatever your outcome is. Partner this with listening and inquiry to demonstrate that these moments are some of the most faith forming a young person can have.
