Like most ministry leaders, you’ve probably heard ominous reports of the demise of faith: the disillusionment of young people, the aging of the church, the rise of the “nones”. . . the list goes on. But what if there are bright spots breaking through the clouds and revealing energized churches brimming with young people? The good news is that those bright-spot churches exist. The Fuller Youth Institute team spent the past three years studying congregations who were effectively capturing the imaginations and hearts of young people ages 15 to 29. Through this landmark investigation of more than 250 diverse congregations, FYI uncovered six core commitments that the most effective churches held in common. This intensive seminar will plumb the depths of those findings. You’ll leave with a host of doable ideas to help your church right now. Don’t give in to growing old—come discover new ways to grow young!
