Only 30% of youth stay involved in church.
We desire to change that.

Your gift gives our youth the best chance.
Research shows that only 30% of youth between 18 and 22 stay involved in church.* The top 3 reasons were: they moved to college, church members seemed judgmental or hypocritical, or they didn’t feel connected to people in their church. While moving to college is something that we have little control over, loving and welcoming all with grace, leading with full integrity, & building a thriving youth community are things that we absolutely desire to do.
*Based on a survey by Lifeway Research conducted in 2017 of young adults.
 And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me.
Matthew 18:5 NLT

Children aren't just the future - they are the now.
Our children and youth need our leadership, love, & a thriving community now. If we truly care for their future, then we'll invest in them here and now, and we plan to do this better than ever before in 2020.
