New video series sparks dialogue

Kristopher Sledge and John Hodges-Batzka (center left and right) sat down in the LINK Communications studio to record their conversation about the statistics and challenges facing Young Adult Ministry. Audrey Wilder (left) directs, while Ashley Brooks and Jerry Wolgemuth operate cameras. This recording was the second of six installments in the Authentic Space series being produced by the Young People’s Ministry.

The first installment of the new “Authentic Space” video series was released in August. Authentic Space is a small-group video resource created by the Young People’s Ministry to equip local congregations to engage young adults in meaningful conversation, and inspire faithful young adult ministry.

New installments will be released on the Young People’s Ministry website ( on the fifteenth of each month from August through January. Each installment will include video segments and a discussion guide designed for use in a small group setting. The material can be used by anyone considering how to be in ministry with young adults, including young adults themselves. All that is needed is an internet connection and a group of people wanting to build the kingdom of God one relationship at a time.

Anyone who has any questions about the series or would like more information, please contact Audrey Wilder, Director of Young People’s Ministry and Christian Education for the Susquehanna Conference, at
