Educate - Not only is this generation unlike any generation the world has ever seen, but this generation is also growing up in a culture unlike the world has every experienced. This is a generation and a culture of lost people. Similar to the importance of a missionary educating themselves on the nuances of the society they are called to, we strive to educate the church on the ever changing cultural climate of this generation.
Encourage - Ministry to young adults isn't easy. If it were, then every church would be doing it. Countless books have been written suggesting that the church isn't doing a very good job connecting with young adults. Our job, however, isn't to make you feel guilty about what you may not be doing, but to encourage you in what you can accomplish for the kingdom of God.
Equip - Through online resources, weekly blogs, and personalized training our desire is to equip you with the tools necessary to help you fulfill your vision in connecting young adults to God, the church, and their purpose in life.
Together we can make a difference! Let us know how we can help you see your vision come to pass. Please email us.
Our vision is simple...we want your vision to happen. You see, because there is no one model of ministry that is completely transferrable, our vision is always changing. We don't feel like we should tell you what to do, but we understand that God can grant you a vision and that we can provide the resources for that vision to be fulfilled.
Each of these people are eager to serve you and your ministry as a resource for national young adult ministry. They are experienced leaders who can help you develop your ministry to young adults:
