(Relevance)— Relevance Ministries, in partnership with Claremont School of Theology and GBOD (Division on Ministries with Young People), returns to Las Vegas, NV February 14-17, 2013, for Relevance 2013. The University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) will play host to two exciting events Relevance 2013 and Relevance LEAD. Young clergy, leaders of young adult ministries, and young adults will gather from across the US and Canada focused on converging, innovating, and transforming young adult ministry in the United Methodist Church.

United-1Relevance Ministries is now pleased to announce that Amena Brown will be performing live at Relevance 2013. As a poet, speaker, journalist, and event host Amena Brown’s words excite, ignite and inspire. Whether in front of audiences as intimate as 50 or as sprawling as 20,000, she has something to say that matters.

The author of a chapbook and two spoken word CDs, Amena has performed and spoken at events across the nation such as The RightNow Conference, Creativity World Forum, Rock the Desert, Catalyst Conference, Chick-fil-A Leadercast, Atlantis Music Conference, 2008 National Poetry Slam Competition, and she toured with Gungor in Spring 2011. She hosts a regular open mic in Atlanta every fifth Thursday with her husband, Matt, at Urban Grind Coffee as well as hosting other poetry and music events.

As a freelance journalist Amena has been published in Southeast Performer Magazine, Charlotte Creative Loafing, Atlanta Creative Loafing, Atlanta INtown Newspaper, and CatalystSpace.com. She also speaks at conferences and events for high school and college students, young adults, and women, where she has facilitated several workshops and breakout sessions on creativity, singleness, writing, and building artistic community.

As a part of a generation that is searching for the real and the genuine in an age of constant carbon copy, Amena is both regal and dramatic in her creative interpretation on the stage, and in her candid and expressive conversation one on one. This nonconformist lends her voice to finding inspiration, truth, and purpose and encourages those she encounters to do the same.
