    Recent studies have shown that a significant percentage of high school graduates stop attending church after entering college. While some leave due to the lack of a genuine relationship with Christ, a sizable number do so after succumbing to challenges to their beliefs and/or the doctrines of their home church. What faith-related questions are the college students facing today? How do we prepare our youths for the challenges ahead? This workshop seeks to address these questions for the interest of youth leaders and parents.

    Thriving Youth Ministry in Smaller Churches

    Publishing Staff Group

    Publishing Staff Group

    Are you a “small” church? Don’t feel bad – you’re the majority! With the average church in America clocking in at about 75 members, there’s no reason why “small” has to equal “less” when it comes to a healthy, thriving youth ministry. We’ll break down stereotypes, rally around biblical and philosophical direction, and gain a ton of practical ideas for creating a ministry that teenagers will love to be a part of – no matter how large or small the group.
