Rejuvenate Your Church!

 Amid the growing chorus of church leaders alarmed by the rise of "nones" as more Americans abandon Christianity, a new book that has just been released showcases areas where churches have been successful at reaching and retaining young people.

At the Catalyst conference in Atlanta on Wednesday, Fuller Youth Institute Executive Director Kara Powell sat down with The Christian Post to discuss Growing Young: 6 Essential Strategies to Help Young People Discover and Love Your Church, a book she co-authored with Jake Mulder and Brad Griffin. While some of the statistics are troubling, there is much more to the story.

Powell, 46, who is also an assistant professor at Fuller Seminary, told CP that she and her colleagues "felt called to do this research because the best data [from Pew and other reputable sources] indicates no major denomination or Christian movement in the U.S. is growing, the number of adults who profess to be Christian is shrinking, so the Church overall is shrinking numerically."
