When it comes to participation in church, the stats about Millenials and Gen Z are startlingly low. What if part of the problem is the “expression” of church they have available to them? In this talk from Kris Beckert, you’ll learn from her experience of forming Fresh Expressions of Church with and for Young Adults.
Fresh Expressions is a worldwide movement of everyday missionaries who want to see churches thrive in the places we live, eat, work and play by leveraging the creativity and endurance of the inherited church. To learn a simple five-phase process for starting a new expression of church go to freshexpressions.com/howtostart.
