Children, Mission and Education Symposium

My colleague Chris Barnett has asked me to spread the word about a forthcoming Symposium coming up next month.

Children & Spirituality Symposium, Friday September 11, Parkville, Melbourne

A unique event on the Australian ministry calendar, the Children & Spirituality Symposium  is a wonderful opportunity for theologically engaged practitioners (including chaplains, RE teachers, Christian educators, ministers/pastors and children & families ministry leaders), those who are currently undertaking research around ministry with children and families and those who have previously completed such research, to gather, engage and explore together.

This year’s Symposium explores the topic of Child, Mission and Education. Drawing together three significant thinkers, writers and leaders in their respective fields, this Symposium offers the prospect of challenging in-put, fascinating conversation and robust group engagement. The 2015 presenters are…

Rev. Dr. John Flett                  Co-ordinator of Studies (Missiology),  Pilgrim Theological College
Dr. Larissa McLean Davies   Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching, Graduate School of Education (University of Melbourne)
Beth Barnett                             Learning and Theological Engagement, Victorian Council of Christian Education

…and this will be a great day for anyone willing to be stretched in both their undergirding theological understanding and actual practice of ministry engagement with children and their families.
