Jake Mulder is the Co-Author of ‘Growing Young’ & Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Fuller Youth Institute in California. Jake is passionate about helping individuals & organisations create environments & culture that help young people find faith – & stick with it for a lifetime!
A seminar suitable for the home, school & church environments:
Day 1: Friday 22 February 9am-4pm “Growing Young”
Churches are losing both members and vitality as increasing numbers of young people disengage. Based on groundbreaking research with over 250 of the United State’s leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain teenagers and young adults. It profiles innovative churches that are engaging 15-29 year olds and as a result are growing spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Jake will show pastors and ministry leaders how to position their churches to engage younger generations in a way that breathes vitality, life, and energy into the whole church.
Day 2: Saturday 23 February 9am-4pm “Sticky Faith”
The data is clear that almost half of graduating high school students will drift from God and the church after high school. The team at Fuller Youth Institute are not satisfied with that. We suspect you’re not either. Discover practical research-based insights for how your ministry can best partner with parents, develop intergenerational relationships, and share the Gospel with students so that faith will last long after your young people leave school or youth group.
