    GROWING YOUNG: HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE DISCOVER AND LOVE THE CHURCH

    Tuesday, January 8
    Underwritten by: Calvin Academy for Lifelong Learning

    In the midst of the discouraging reports about the aging and decline of churches today, what steps do savvy churches take that help them best love and serve teenagers and young adults?  Kara Powell is the executive director of the Fuller Youth Institute and associate professor of youth and family ministry at Fuller Theological Seminary who will be addressing this question and many like it in her talk.  Named by Christianity Today as one of “50 Women to Watch,” she is the author or coauthor of several books, including Growing Young and Sticky Faith, and a regular speaker at national leadership and youth ministry conferences across the country.
