Keynote #1

"Pilgrimage And Purpose"

Many pursue pilgrimage to gain a deeper sense of God's calling on their lives. In fact, some of the world's most impactful justice leaders tie their sense of purpose to insights gained and commitments made amidst travel to meaning-filled places.

In this keynote address, you will gain an understanding of what pilgrimage is, why pilgrimage enhances clarity around calling and purpose, and what this means for youth and young adult ministry.

Keynote #2

"How To Develop A Neighborhood Pilgrimage With Young People"

You do not need to go to an internationally sought-after location to practice pilgrimage. In fact, some of the most meaningful pilgrimages can be done locally in often-overlooked places.

In this keynote address, you will gain practical insights on how to develop a neighborhood pilgrimage with young people in your care.
