The 2023 conference theme is “Gen Z: The Ongoing Conversation.” We have gathered thought leaders from different disciplines and different faith traditions to approach this discussion from many lenses, including cultural intelligence, current sociological research, family studies, adolescent development, psychology, youth ministry, and spirituality studies. Our hope is to engage thought leaders, scholars, church leaders, and youth and family ministers as we learn together how to better include and empower Gen Z in our faith communities. All who have an interest in this topic are welcome to join us, either in person or online.

  • David Kinnaman (Barna Group): Gen Z and Resilient Discipleship
