Message from the Design Team

I have a close friend and colleague who is constantly reminding us that the call of God is “voice activated.” It truly takes a community to call out the gifts and graces of people for their work towards God’s Kingdom in the world. This community must also begin to “look around” and see who among them, especially among young people, have the gifts, graces, and aptitudes for leadership in the Christian community. Some of these young people might sense a call, but many others might have never thought about this possible vocation.

Here’s where all of us come in!

Exploration 2011 will provide young people with an opportunity to discern God’s call in their lives. It will provide participants with a community of people to help them hear God’s call for their lives. Through plenary sessions, workshops, small groups, and interactions at meal times, young people will have the opportunity to hear, to sense, and to discern if God is calling them to ordained leadership in the church.

As we prepare for this time together I ask you to pray. Pray for all the leaders who will gather there; for speakers, workshop presenters, small group facilitators, for all the participants. Pray that God will speak loudly and boldly to these young people. Pray that many will hear God’s call in their lives.

Look around! God is calling young people to be about the work of leadership in the church.  Identify  them, call them, invite them, and remember: The call of God is “voice activated!”

See you in St. Louis . . .
