Retaining Young People And Growing The Church
The recent Church Growth Research (see www.churchgrowthresearch.org.uk) identifies that
the successful transmission of faith to children
and young people is a key factor in stemming decline and promoting growth.
This book explores the cultural and theological
reasons as to why this is the case and makes
research-based recommendations for the faith formation
of children and young people. The central argument is that
church communities need to engage in deliberate
strategies that help foster ‘intentional Christian Communities’ within which children and young people can form and sustain Christian identity.
