It’s no surprise to any of us when we hear the data saying there are less and less young adults in our churches. Many of us in ministry are experiencing this first hand. Whilst there is no silver bullet to change this situation, understanding the way young adults think about faith and life and how that might differ to other generations is a key starting point if the church wants to connect with and be relevant to the young adults in our community.
We have invited Paul Humphreys to come and share with us and lead us in a conversation around engaging with young adults. Paul has had years of experience working with and journeying alongside young adults as a youth pastor and in camping ministry, both in New Zealand and overseas. Alongside Paul’s hands on experience, he has also read widely and thought deeply about the church’s engagement with its younger members. Currently Paul serves as the National Leadership Facilitator for Scripture Union New Zealand.
