Tuesday Tome - Growing Young

I attended a seminar for pastors at Bethel Seminary last week. The speaker for that seminar was Kara Powell, co-author of the book Growing Young: Six Essential Strategies to Help Young People Discover and Love Your Church. The content presented was very interesting and I was glad to get some affirmation about the direction and strategy we've been moving toward in our church. In addition to a good seminar, I was given a copy of the book so I can read more on the subject.

Publisher's Description...
All churches grow old. Strategic churches grow young.
Across the United States, churches are losing both members and vitality as increasing numbers of young people disengage. Based on groundbreaking research with over 250 of the nation's leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain teenagers and young adults. It profiles innovative churches that are engaging 15- to 29-year- olds and as a result are growing--spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Packed with both research and practical ideas, Growing Young shows pastors and ministry leaders how to position their churches to engage younger generations in a way that breathes vitality, life, and energy into the whole church.
