Reaching Younger Adults – March 27-28, 2015 – Front Street United Methodist Church – 136 South Fisher Street, Burlington, NC

A thousand books, blogs and tweets tell you why younger adults aren’t coming to your church. You’ve watched churches try dozens of new programs that have had little impact. In spite of all the bad news, it isn’t too late. Your church can be filled again with every generation including young adults.  Here is good news for you:  A pastor and a handful of committed lay people can completely change the trajectory of your church.   Young adults are finding their way to new homes, new relationships, new careers, new communities.  You can help them also find a new way to Christ and your church.

The Reaching Younger Adults Workshop

  • Lets you hear directly from younger adults who are active with Christ and the church about how their church connected with them and opened the door to Christian discipleship.
  • The workshop is scripturally sound and rooted in experiences of hundreds of young adults who are actively involved with Christ and a local church.
  • Gives your church confidence to come alongside younger people in your community
  • Develops behaviors that communicate love, faith and hope alongside younger people
  • Highlights opportunities for your church to engage younger adults
  • Increases actions that foster multi-generational ministry
  • Teaches how to manage and mitigate inter-generational conflict
  • Develops awareness of how younger people approach discipleship
  • Initial workshop runs from Friday Evening March 27 – 6 pm to 8:30 pm – Saturday March 28 – 9 am to 4 pm
  • Cost $150 per Western North Carolina Conference United Methodist Church (up to eight participants – includes lunch Saturday)
  • SPACE IS LIMITED – Register right away

Coaching Cluster

After the Workshop, your church can join an optional coaching cluster. Coaching cluster participants will avoid the “workbook on the shelf syndrome,” and develop a much greater capacity to connect with younger adults in their mission field. This option involves a yearlong coaching experience for clergy and a lay team of 3 to 10 people from your church. Duke Endowment eligible churches receive significant support for this coaching relationship.

  • Monthly On-Line Coaching Conference
  • 24/7 Email/ Phone Access
  • Six month live Tune-Up
