I’ve finally managed to get around to reading Lost and Found: The Younger Unchurched and the Churches that Reach Them by Ed Stetzer, Richie Stanley, and Jason Hayes. The book (especially in the first third) is very research heavy, but I’ve been enjoying most of the second third which discusses 4 markers of ministry that young adults need and are clamoring for.
What do you think of these? Any of my “young adult” (20-29ish) readers agree or feel the need to weigh in?
Here they are:
1. Community-life is meant to be experience together.
2. Depth– especially not settling for “pat answers”
3. Responsiblity– realize their choices can make a difference in the world.
4. Connection– especially regarding intergenerational connectedness and mentoring.
