Description

Churches are losing both members and vitality as increasing numbers of young people disengage. Based on groundbreaking research with over 250 of the nation’s leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain teenagers and young adults. It profiles innovative churches that are engaging 15- to 29-year-olds and as a result are growing–spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Packed with both research and practical ideas, Growing Young shows pastors and ministry leaders how to position their churches to engage younger generations in a way that breathes vitality, life, and energy into the whole church.

The aging of the American church is a strong trend. Fuller Youth Institute’s broad study of congregations leads to what they identify as “six essential strategies.” From a serious look at Jesus’ life and ministry to a focus on warm congregational community, these strategies provide an avenue to celebrate what the Lord is doing in a local church and to explore how to deepen in ways that serve the next generation. This resource includes the best insights from biblical congregations of all sizes and can be prayerfully adapted to your setting.
