Ministering to Young Adults: How the Attitude of the Pastor And His Congregation Play a Role
MetadataShow full item record
This paper will focus on developing the faith of young adults. When young adults have more freedoms after high school, they face many new problems and temptations. To help me know and understand these struggles, I interviewed pastors who have been specifically working with kids this age. The two major problems we talked about the most were peer-pressure and scheduling. Young adults are not being retained in churches right now. I believe a big factor of why this is happening is because pastors and their congregations do not have the proper attitude toward this generation. I discuss what that proper attitude looks like and how that attitude can be reached. Pastors and congregations are those who have to find ways to approach young adults on a day-to-day basis. Some ideas we focused on were loving care, good Bible classes, and teamwork. This paper will include, but is not limited to, the work in campus ministry. The ministry to young adults is important in the world right now because they are the future generation of Christians. We must remember that they are redeemed children of God who need spiritual nourishment.
