What do congregations need to know about the way young adults, age 18-34, think and communicate? This collection of nine articles seeks to break through myths and stereotypes to inform and equip church leaders in reaching out to this multi-faceted group. Noted experts including Ed Stetzer, Scot McKnight and Dan Kimball weigh in on topics such as the characteristics of effective congregations, the potential draw of Celtic spirituality, and young adults’ passion for justice. Each article is a stand-alone, user-friendly mix of information, reflection guide and action ideas. Practical Ministry Skills can be used by leadership teams, small groups, and ministry planners over a series of meetings or in a retreat setting. The perspective is evangelical Christian but there are gems for anyone looking for practical help. The download fee includes permission to make up to 1000 copies for in-house use.
