Theme:

“Growing Young”, led by Guest Speaker Brockie Follett

Churches of all denominations are both shrinking and aging as more young people disengage. Growing Young is based on research by the Fuller Youth Institute with over 250 of our nation’s congregations. Growing Young provides a toolkit any church can use to reframe their imagination in involving and retaining young people.  GY profiles innovative churches engaging 15-29 yr olds that are growing – spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically.  Packed with ideas, Growing Young guides ministry leaders in how to prepare their churches to reach younger generations in a way that breathes life into the whole church. We want to share this message of hope with RMYM of how to be Growing Young while growing old.
