Right now, I’m at the Princeton Youth Forum in Santa Barbara, which features some really smart people who are leading thinkers in youth ministry and beyond. Last night, I gave a presentation on how design and design thinking methods can help youth ministers address the challenges (big and small) we face in our ministries. It’s drawn from the practices we use to create sparkhouse resources, as well as my experiences in ministry.
I’m posting a growing bibliography from my talk at http://princetonforum.tumblr.com/. Some other forum attendees will also be posted highlights and sources from the lectures and electives they go to, so we’ll crowdsource a more complete bibliography from the event. And if you have other references you’d like to add, just let me know!
I speak again on Wednesday afternoon, or if you want to catch it some other time, I’ll be leading a couple workshops at the ELCA Youth Ministry Network Extravaganza and co-presenting with Tony Jones at the Princeton Forum in April.
