Huntington, Ind.—Dr. Dave Rahn, professor of educational ministries and director of the Link Institute at Huntington College and vice president for Youth for Christ/USA Ministries, was recently interviewed by Mike Potter of Parenting Teenagers regarding his social science research and how that research can influence parenting teens. Potter interviewed Rahn after hearing his presentation at a Youth Specialties conference in Pittsburgh. The interview highlights will air on WBCL February 24-27 at 3:15 p.m. A transcript of the entire interview is available online at www.parentministry.org.
Rahn also presented a workshop on Saturday, February 1, for the Central Indiana Christian Educator’s Fellowship in Indianapolis. He presented three topics in his workshop including, “Avoiding No Man’s Land: The Only Two Choices for a Macro-Vision of Youth Ministry;” “One Life at a Time: A Micro-Vision of Spiritual Formation for Young People;” and “Ministry Assessment as Spiritual Discipline.” These topics helped participants make decisions on how to conduct youth outreach. They also helped youth ministers understand and practice spiritual formation and focus on the potential to improve their own faithfulness and fruitfulness through ministry assessment.
Rahn joined the faculty of Huntington College in 1985. He completed his bachelor’s degree at Huntington College, his master’s degree at Wheaton College, and his doctorate degree at Purdue University. Before coming to Huntington, he worked with Youth for Christ for 13 years.
