This course investigates the challenge of empowering and equipping emerging young adults to reach their God-designed potential for spiritual transformation. The generation of young adults today is the first that has grown up shaped by the internet and by globalisation while many in church leadership are from an earlier era. As many churches today are multigenerational, how can churches have healthy intergenerational ministries? This course will help participants:
- understand who young adults are especially the Millennials and Gen Zs and the unique spiritual challenges they present for discipleship;
- understand what young adults need as they journey from adolescence to adulthood;
- be introduced to key ministry strategies for ministering to young adults; and
- be exposed to current local research as to how different generations perceive faith.
