I’m a Lutheran.
I’m a Methodist.
We are a large, diverse, beautiful mess of God’s people.
We do not think in the same way; our opinions differ, and we may disagree. But we are followers, disciples of the God of the universe.
It turns out that this world is also a large, diverse, beautiful mess of God’s people. Life is messy and the issues we face in youth ministry are complicated and difficult, oftentimes without a one-size-fits-all solution.
We’re going to disagree, and that’s OK. I’m pretty sure that happened occasionally with believers in the Bible too (rumor has it).
We’re progressive. We’re conservative. And that’s OK. Cultivate isn’t only for a few people. It’s for anyone who wants to dive into the messiness that is ministering to teenagers.
At Cultivate, we believe in discourse and wrestling with the tough issues in youth ministry. We’re not into quick fixes, and we believe healthy discussion (even disagreements!) is good for our faith and ministries.
Come to listen. Come to talk. Come to grow.
Come to Cultivate.
