Over a year ago we first determined that we wanted to start offering “mini-themes” of articles within the Christian Education Journal to provide an opportunity for some focused attention on important educational ministry areas. This is our second issue with this kind of structure and we are excited to share it with you.
David Setran, from Wheaton College, serves as the guest editor for this mini-theme on “College and Young Adult Ministry.” He has recruited authors and pulled together a wonderful collection of articles that includes recent research and critical thinking about ministry issues with people at this stage of life. As most of us can attest, these years are a critical time for faith formation and maturation, and it offers many challenges and opportunities for those who invest their ministry efforts here. David’s editorial provides a helpful overview and introduction to these six articles and I am sure you will enjoy reading them.
