Summer 2020: Called To Be Co-Creators: You Are Enough Right Now!
July 12 – 17, 2020
Are you tired of being looked down upon for your age? Do you know you have gifts God’s church and world need? Are you eager to dig deeper into how God is calling you in unique ways to God’s redemptive work in our world? If so, then please plan on joining us at this year’s Augsburg Youth Theology Institute. We will look at many ways the world views teenagers and we will construct a theological way of understanding what it means to be a youth. We will explore sites around the Twin Cities that will help you develop a deeper appreciation for how unique you are and how God is calling you to be a co-creator.
