“Coming of Age”

In many ways, youth ministry has grown up; how does that change our field?

What happens when countries come of age? Or cultural movements (or church

movements)? As the adolescent stage grows longer on both ends, how does that

affect our understanding of what it means for kids to come of age? How

useful are rites of passage in that context? What about a global youth

culture? And adults not wanting to grow up?…

If you have article ideas on this theme, write “September/October 2005

proposal” in the e-mail subject field, and send an outline and opening

paragraph within the e-mail body by April 15 to

You’ll receive a reply no later than August 1.
