Insights from the Underside
Insights from the Underside: An Intergenerational Conversation of Ministers is an opportunity to listen in on the thoughtful and thought-provoking conversations between some of today’s leading young adult ministers and veteran ministers. Topics include family, church, context, marriage, money, prayer and more. We’ve included the results of the Top 10 things I wished I learned at seminary, but didn’t questionnaire from young adult pastors who attended the 7% Young Adult Clergy Conferences in 2003 (New Orleans, LA) and 2005 (San Francisco, CA). The comments will no doubt cause you to laugh and smile as they resonate deeply with you. We hope you enjoy a sense of camaraderie. The contributors to this book are ministers from the PC(USA) but we believe it will benefit many. Across denominations, we hope it finds its way into the hands and hearts of those who love and serve the church, including ministers, those who work with youth and young adults, committees on preparation for ministry, church officers, seminary presidents and trustees, governing body officials, teachers, and Christian educators.
