This guide is for churches that wish to welcome in and better serve Young Adults. Included within are suggested approaches, input from Young Adults, and additional resources. The guide is for anyone hoping to make their church a more engaging community for Young Adults. Our hope is for this to be accessible to pastors, lay leaders, parents and young adults. We know that every church is different, so we have tried to provide an array of perspectives and suggestions. This guide was created by Amy Kenyon.
