A New Generation Church is a church with attendees whose average age
is at least as young as the average age of the community in which the
church exists. Any church can become a New Generation Church that
reaches and continues to reach the next generation.
The Psalmist writes:
will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next
generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his
mighty wonders. (Psalm 78:4 NLT)No Christian would purposely hide the
timeless truths of Christianity from the next generation. But often we
do, not because of the substance of our church, but because of the
approach of our church.
For A New Generation is not about
changing your church s statement of faith or core beliefs. It is about
evaluating and changing, as needed, your church s programs, ministries
and practices in order to more effectively connect with and stay
connected with the next generation.
Written for both church
leaders and members, For a New Generation presents 5 practical
strategies that will lay a foundation for a church to thrive for
generations to come. It is based on the assumption that accepting the
status quo is the greatest threat to your church s core mission and,
perhaps, to the long-term survival of your church."
