Publisher's Summary

Unleashing the passion of young people in your church is possible!

Churches are losing both members and vitality as increasing numbers of young people disengage. Based on groundbreaking research with over 250 of the nation's leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain teenagers and young adults. It profiles innovative churches that are engaging 15- to 29-year-olds and as a result are growing - spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Packed with both research and practical ideas, Growing Young shows pastors and ministry leaders how to position their churches to engage younger generations in a way that breathes life and energy into the whole church.

Great book, some of the worst voice acting/reading

The book is great. I highly recommend it for any Church that is concerned about reaching and keeping young people.

However, the audio is terrible. It's read without feeling, with strange pauses. It reads the sidebars without finishing the paragraphs. All in all, it's a mess.

Should have ordered a paper copy

Hard to follow, too many statistics. Good content but needed to see it physically in order to really understand and process the text.

Great Insight and Practice

This book is worth every bit of insight you gain in its wisdom. Even if you just look at the practice lists at the end of every chapter, you would be moving in a good direction.
