Science and Youth Ministry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The young people to whom we minister find themselves confronting distinct and sometime opposed ideologies, world views, and practices, including the church’s ideas of faith and their school’s teaching and commitment to science. Are faith and science are in deadly competition? How can things like Genesis and evolution fit together? Hear the findings of the John Templeton Foundation research project, and discuss what is needed to help a conversation between faith and science happen in our youth groups.
