"We do have a history of strong youth ministry in the church," says Ciona Rouse, director of the Shared Mission Focus on Young People in Nashville, Tenn. "The reality, however, is that young adults and youth are still only 11 to 12 percent of our church membership."
Young adults from 18 to 30 may be the most underserved in the church right now, she says.She points out that aside from campus ministry, youth adult ministries are "non-existent in many places across our denomination."
Providing outreach and ministry opportunities to young adults is important, says the Rev. Harold "Hal" Hartley III, director in Campus Ministry Section, Board of Higher Education and Ministry."Many young adults I know report finding it difficult to find a home in local congregations that are set in traditional ways of worship and not welcoming of the gifts young adults have to offer," he says.
Williams warns against creating separate worship services and activities just for youth that keep them out of the whole congregation.He says there is no substitute for simply asking young people what they want, including them in the worship planning team and valuing their opinion.
"Don't just assume you know what young people want because of something you have read or something you have heard," he says.
