Churches are losing both members and vitality as increasing numbers of young people disengage. Yet, unleashing the passion of young people in your church is possible. Based on groundbreaking research with more than 250 of the nation’s leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain young people. It profiles innovative churches engaging 15- to 29-year-olds who are growing–spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Packed with ideas, Growing Young shows ministry leaders how to position their churches to reach younger generations in a way that breathes life into the whole church.
Cost: $15/person or $60/church (4-6 people + $10/person over 6)
