The purpose of seminars is to equip youth and adults of Mennonite Church USA for witness, formation, discernment, and leadership. Seminars are typically 60 minutes in length and cover a variety of categories including but not limited to church vitality, leadership development, peace and justice, health and well-being, stewardship, and youth ministry.
We are looking for seminars that…

- equip youth and adults for formative Christian practices such as Bible study, prayer, worship, hospitality, testimony and peacemaking. (Formation)
- equip youth and adults to discern a common way of life as a contrast society. (Discernment)
- equip participants with specific skills needed for leadership roles in congregations, both lay and credentialed. (Leadership)
- can be presented in Spanish.
We expect that all seminars at MennoCon21…
