Held on February 25, A Transformative Moment was a ecumenical gathering of pastors and lay leaders to think creatively with one another about young adult ministry. Discussion considered new ways of understanding young adult faith transitions based on varied experiences with young adults, and reflecting on on ways of talking with young adults about topics like prayer, baptism, Jesus, and sex.
