Youth Ministry in Africa
Nairobi, Kenya: 31 August – 3 September 2016
With 200 million people aged between 15 and 24, Africa has the youngest population in the world. Africa has more people aged fewer than 20 than anywhere in the world and the continent’s population is set to double to two billion by 2050. This reality is set to provide both challenges and opportunities to the church and youth workers. However, looking at the current research and publications, it is hard to quantify the state of youth ministry in Africa.
We want to continue to encourage and strengthen youth ministry in Africa. We look forward to papers from various contexts and research bases – be that theological, historical, philosophical, quantitative, and qualitative or other research traditions. We really want to respect the interdisciplinary nature of our ministry.
The following main themes will be covered:
- Theological foundation of youth ministry (opening session)
- Youth and culture
- Youth and technology: opportunities and challenges
- Youth and globalization
- Youth and development
