Young adults are very important to the church family in several very essential ways. Future life and good memories of leaders, and friends are all affected. Each church congregation has three generations operating at same time the. youth are the future in process, naturally and spiritually. At the same time older adults wisdom and experiences are usable. This combination creates an unbeatable team called the body of Christ. Yes, Church world today cannot afford to lose either generations. All together are what represents a healthy Body for Holy Spirit to work through.
What happens when all ages work as one church team they produce spiritual power that cannot be defeated. When entire church becomes one team with many positions, congregation will start growing again. Many churches today are falling through the cracks because their focus is on filling pews instead of producing a full team Jesus can start working through as His original design.
Young adults ages 16 and up need a real relationship with their church knowing they are important. Young adults can be the key to holding all three generations together. Actually, the most powerful group for increase is young adults and young married couples. Why, they are the next generation of leadership, plus elderly adults is focused on them as next generation of leadership.
One Christian report I read said that over 50% of Christian students leave church when they graduate from high school. The most popular reason was their disconnection as part of the church body relationship, When a person never takes an ownership in church, they will have a visitor mentality. If a person takes spiritual ownership, there is usually good communications with the church. Also, most young adults are more excited about being part of something they want to help make it even better and bigger feeling they have a purpose getting other people involved with what they are building. Actually, Jesus’ plan for church is a perpetual move that never ends, instead, it builds as many as possible.
SEPTEMBER 8, 1974 – Open Vision: God’s Separated Sheep’s Direction While thinking about what’s going on in the world, suddenly, Lord was sitting in front of me with His hands lifted saying: “I have a special message for My people that are like lost sheep spread out and separated going wrong directions. Many need help for they will be lost the way they headed. I am sending you forth unto My people who need help for time is short.
(Note: Lord looking for Christians to help those lost on wrong path)
