  1. Nurturing Our Faith in The Faith: A Grateful Response to Mark Lamport and Darrel Yoder

    Fall 2006 — Pages 362-368

    Response to article "Faithful Gestures: Rebooting the Educational Mission of the Church" which appeared in the CEJ, Spring 2006, V3:1 issue.

    I write now to engage some of the ideas brought forth in the very thoughtful article entitled “Faithful Gestures: Rebooting the Educational Mission of the Church” by Mark A. Lamport and Darrell Yoder (CEJ, Spring 2006). What I have to say is largely in the spirit of gratitude and collaboration. While I may take exception to a few of the points these authors have raised, I see my central message here as complementary, rather than contradictory, to their contributions.

  2. Ministering in the Real World: A Multicultural Perspective on Youth Ministry

    Fall 1999 — Pages 31-45

    The changing face of U.S. society requires new multicultural sensitivities for youth ministry.

Moreover, lack of ethnic sensitivity causes many youth ministries to be less effective than they need be. This article calls us to greater cultural sensitivity and awareness as we do youth ministry in increasingly multicultural contexts.
