Sacramento, CA: National Youth Workers Convention Presentation on “Teaching Students to Think Critically and Christianly about Music and Media”
October 4, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Five years ago, we learned that students ages 8 to 18 were spending more than 7 and a half hours per day engaged with media. As people called to help students live out their faith in every nook and cranny of their lives, youth workers must equip students and their parents to follow Jesus onto the media landscape by training them to engage thoughtfully, intentionally, critically, and Christianly with media and music. In this seminar, CPYU President Dr. Walt Mueller will teach you about the powerful life-shaping role that music and media play in student’s lives, along with a very practical, biblical method to teach students that will develop their ability filter their music and media choices through a Christian world and life view.
