About this Event
In the midst of the discouraging reports about the aging and decline of churches today, what steps do savvy churches take that help them best love and serve teenagers and young adults?
Through a landmark investigation of more than 250 diverse congregations, the Fuller Youth Institute uncovered the core commitments that are key to reaching and retaining young people. This talk explores those findings as well as stories of real-life churches like yours that are growing and thriving. You’ll glean a host of doable ideas to help your church change young people, and help young people change your church.
