Podcast 06.01: Mary Helen Lockee – Creating Inclusive Environments through Strategic Language

ABOUT THIS EPISODE: During undergrad, Mary Helen completed a Senior Capstone Project titled “Why is the Church such a mysterious entity?” In other words – why does the WORD church stir up so many emotions in folks. Through a few years of research she discovered the terms “linguistic relativity” & “expectation violation theory”, and how they contribute to why people mentally check out of the church around 14 and physically around 16. We chat about how youth ministers can create more inclusive environments through strategic language!

ABOUT MARY HELEN: Mary Helen is a big fan of glitter, a champion for student ministry, and a seasoned communicator. She is passionate about empowering youth to own both their faith and doubt by creating environments that use strategic language to foster a life-long faith.
