We’re surrounded by discouraging reports about the aging and decline of churches today. But what if that’s only part of the story? What if there are energized churches brimming with young people and growing young? The good news is that those bright-spot churches exist. The Fuller Youth Institute team spent the past three years studying congregations that love and are loved by people between the ages of 15-29. Through this landmark investigation of more than 250 diverse congregations, FYI uncovered six core commitments that are key to reaching and retaining young people. This seminar explores those findings as well as stories of real-life churches that are thriving. You’ll leave with a host of doable ideas to help your church right now. Your church doesn’t have to grow old—come discover new ways to grow young!
