Rethink: Walking People through the Process of Conversion
Presented by: Paul George, author of Rethink Happiness
Date: May 1, 2018
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
What does conversion look like? Pope Benedict stated that conversion in Greek means to "rethink." In other words, conversion begins and continues through the process of thinking and rethinking about life.

During this webinar author and speaker Paul George will walk parish ministers through the process of conversion by answering the following questions:

- What are the components and  benchmarks of conversion?  
- How do we walk with people both individually in discipleship and as a parish community?  
- How can we be strategic in inspiring conversion and helping people encounter and walk with Christ in our ministries?



Forming Followers, Not Fans: How to Help Young People Meet Jesus
Presented by: Katie Prejean McGrady, author of Follow
Date: May 8, 2018
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
There are two essential questions young people ask during their faith formation:

1. Who is Jesus?
2. How can I get to know him for myself?

Short of giving them a two hour lecture, what can we do to engage young people in practical, inspirational, and innovative ways that help them discover the answers to those questions and in the process actually form a relationship with the Lord?  

The answer is quite simple: teach them to pray, help them dive into Scripture, lead them to the Sacraments, and give them opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus. When we help them do these things (pray, read, receive, and serve), then Jesus becomes far more than a fairytale figure or concept in a textbook. He becomes someone with whom they can have a real, personal, and authentic relationship.





The opportunity to participate in these webinars is wonderful. Thank you so much for offering them. It is great to be able to consider important issues and hear from such very good presenters without having to leave my office (which I might not be able to do)! This is a great service that Ave Maria is offering. I am most appreciative.
