ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUNG PEOPLE
? Are you burdened by the alarming statistic that close to 78% of kids are abandoning their faith and leaving the church? Get in the story God is writing here in South Florida as part of the Next Generation Team!
The objective of this team is to take a holistic look at the spiritual development of children, adolescents, and young adults to better understand how they practice their faith. This will help us build strong, discipleship-focused programs specifically designed to engage kids and youth in a deeper, more authentic relationship with God as they move from adolescence into adulthood. We’ll also develop discipleship opportunities on college campuses that will help strengthen the college and post college-aged student’s faith, while also opening doors for evangelism and outreach to unchurched college students.
Understanding that adults between 18–20 are rapidly abandoning their faith as they transition from adolescence into adulthood, this project team will evaluate the cycle of engagement from preschool all the way through the post-college stage. This information will assist in the creation and development of intentional programs that will guide children and adolescents to build genuine faith on a personal level, to serve, be discipled, and take on leadership roles while also developing programs, outreach initiatives, and events—such as apologetics seminars, Alpha training, care packages during midterms, helping students move in, and various other volunteer opportunities—on college campuses.
