Teachers of Joy:
Grounding Youth Ministry Education in a Theology of Joy 

Proposal Deadline: July 15, 2018


We encourage the submission of proposals for presentations at this year’s AYME Conference. Given our interdisciplinary nature and desire to continue to encourage this strength, we invite you to submit a proposal from your context and from your research base, be that theological, historical, philosophical, quantitative, qualitative, or other research traditions.

We are especially interested in papers which explore how to ground our profession as youth ministry educators in a robust theology of joy.  This is a wonderful opportunity for your work to stimulate the thinking of others in the field while receiving valuable feedback from colleagues.

Paper presentations will be featured in 50-minute time slots.

All accepted papers MUST BE SUBMITTED electronically in full NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 15, 2018. They need to be posted for reading on the AYME website prior to the conference. Any papers not received by the due date may not be presented at the conference. Seriously consider this when applying.
