Workshop Session 4: Next Generation 101: Connecting Emerging Adults to Your Church
Research suggests that today's young people are less interested in church than at almost any other point in history. Church plants however, have a unique opportunity to connect with young adults that begins with understanding their context. This session will focus on what it means to comprehend the world young people inhabit and explore how that knowledge creates opportunities to connect and commit to mission and ministry with emerging adults.
