A four-week, online book club to read, talk about and learn in ways that help us in our ministry, as well as our life and faith


Our spring 2020 Book:  Growing Young

We’ve all heard the grim news: Church attendance is declining across denominations and young people are disengaging with the church. 

In an effort to address the problem of declining, graying congregations, the team at Fuller Youth Institute has released the book, Growing Young: 6 Essential Strategies to Help Young People Discover and Love Your Church.  Based on research from 363 diverse thriving ministries where young people are engaged, the authors found effective strategies to help church workers engage, involve, and retain young people. 

You don’t want to miss this conversation and gain some practical ideas you can put into place to help your church engage younger generations in a way that breathes life, vitality, and energy into the whole church.
