Where to Purchase


According to statistics, young adults are more disenchanted with the church than ever.

Beyond the statistics are the stories
--real people with real opinions and real experiences. These people are more than just numbers. They are your son or daughter, the barista at your favorite café, a young co-worker, the college student you sit next to at church.

What would happen if we took the time to listen to them?

Listening and trying to understand someone's perspective is time consuming and often challenging. And we may never agree with those other perspectives. But as friends, parents, grandparents, and mentors, we must find ways to bridge the gap and connect with young people.

The future of the church depends on it.
