10 Reasons Young Adults are Checking Out of Your Place of Worship
Find out why. The very survival of your ministry or place of worship depends on it.
Whenever I visit a place of worship, ('church') I make it a point to notice the number of young adults in attendance as well as the number of them in leadership positions. Why? Because the number of young adults in any organization says a lot about that organizations future.
Millennials are the largest generation since the "Baby Boomer" generation, with numbers expecting to reach 73 million in population in 2019.
The primary mission of every generation of 'church' leaders is to first share our faith with the next generation, to one day pass the reins of leadership. Those that fail to reach young adults will struggle far more than ministries that don’t.
If we're not reaching the future of our faith and ministry, then there is no future. This means the body, the ekklesia, is dying.
Maybe you've heard that young adults are leaving 'church' the faith and the building. Some say in "droves" and some say it's worse in some cultures and denominations than others. Whatever the numbers are, they are leaving and that's a fact.
I'm F. L. Anderson and I love nothing better than sharing what I have learned with those who are eager to grow and serve better in ministry.
A few years ago, I realized I needed a way to help those I simply can't reach in person, for a fraction of the cost of what it takes to attend a conference. So I created an online portal of online courses for ministry leaders.
My online courses actually deliver far more than any speaking engagement would. They give you my best research-backed, high-quality, in-depth, actionable content, that is on-demand and whenever you need it. This means no time limits or restriction so you can take your time to go through them as well as come back to them at any time. Best of all they're updated in real-time so you will always have the latest updates at no additional cost.
