Barna Group President, David Kinnaman posed this poignant question to over 600 registrants attending You Lost Me. Live! this Spring, hosted by Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church in Texas. The question struck close to home as local congregations are witnessing 59% of their young adults evaporate from church life — the Adventist church not spared.
To aid local faith communities in building redemptive relationships with young adults, Younger Generation Church [www.YGchurch.com], in collaboration with the Southwestern Union Conference and North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, has produced free downloadable resources that capture the essence of Kinnaman’s presentation, but further, solicits ministry leaders to take relevant next steps.
