  • You keep guessing or hoping that you’re focusing your church’s energy in the right places.
  • You’ve had to make radical shifts because of the pandemic, and you are uncertain where to go next.
  • Your community is changing, but you don’t know how to reach your new neighbors.
  • You’re tired of feeling stuck, frustrated, and overwhelmed.

Stop guessing at trends and let our expert church training lead you forward.

WHAT IS GROWING YOUNG, AND HOW CAN IT HELP MY CHURCH REACH YOUNG PEOPLE?

If your church is like so many others in the US, you’re dedicated to leading and developing followers of Jesus of all ages. But something’s missing.

Young people. Twentysomethings. Teenagers. Maybe they’re not completely absent, but there sure aren’t as many as you’d like to see.

If your church seems to be aging every year, you’re not alone. You’re actually part of an overwhelming trend.

While 18-29 year olds make up 17% of our overall population, they constitute only 10% of churchgoers. In fact, many churches across the United States are shrinking and aging overall, and even closing their doors. The stats are sobering.

There’s good news for churches across the nation.

We’ve studied over 250 of the nation’s leading congregations, developing groundbreaking research from intentional, healthy churches that are growing—spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and even numerically⁠— and are filled with the passion of young people who are involved across a variety of ministries.

We want to share everything we learned with you.

Growing Young in a Changing World is a nine-month, fully digital church training experience that will help you unleash the potential of your congregation to engage the next generation.

Throughout the digital cohort, our FYI team will journey with you and help you focus on what’s most essential to helping teenagers and young adults discover and love your church. Our advanced training model brings together churches that are committed to growing young.

We know that you invest in resources carefully. Conferences can be encouraging, but too general. And seminars are often interesting, but too short. What your team really needs is:

  • Research-based resources which bring proven results
  • A coach to guide you
  • Feedback from peer churches
  • Extended time together
  • Encouragement to turn ideas into strategies
  • Accountability to follow through
  • Space to discuss today’s most pressing conversations

All churches grow old. But strategic churches are Growing Young.
