Congregational Toolbox icon_happy faceOUR RESEARCH

Phase One of our project studied 12 congregations that were nominated by their peers as communities currently doing effective work with young adults. While our team continues working on analyzing our research, we have discovered some fascinating and helpful characteristics and values which we are excited to share!


Here is a collection of studies done by different individuals and organizations on topics regarding “young adults.” While these readings may be useful and spark imaginations, we think that it is important for congregations to NOT talk ABOUT young adults but actually talk to them and takes time to build a meaningful, trusting relationship with them. We also encourage congregations to be open to share power with young adult leaders, whose knowledge, experience, and passion can be a gift to the congregation and its neighbors.
