SUBTITLE: 12 trends on YOUNG ADULTS, THE CHURCH and SPIRITUALITY
SUMMARY: “Why are fewer and fewer young adults involved in the church?”
This burning question led to a five-year-long research project, resulting in this book as one of the outcomes. The book addresses the question of whether young adults still have a need for faith and community as followers of Jesus, if they no longer feel at home in the spaces of the traditional church. And if so, what does it involve?
Embrace the Future is aimed at young adults and anyone who wonders about how a new church will take shape. By listening to the experiences of a younger generation in matters of faith, it can help us discover the future. This book presents 12 trends on young adults, the church and spirituality. The format of the book invites the reader to become part of a journey into the future. It seeks to inspire you to join the conversation. Embrace the Future will challenge you to experiment and innovate in your own context.
