Kaleo – A Conference for People Who Engage With Youth
Taking place on campus Feb. 26, the annual Kaleo conference will tackle one of the greatest questions regarding youth ministry: Why do half of believing high school graduates abandon their faith after they exit college? Using research from Fuller Youth Institute, Kara Powell, the institute’s director, and Jon Furman, a local youth pastor, will provide practical ways to keep students of all ages engaged in their faith, so that they build faith that sticks.
