Growing Young: Six Essential Strategies to Help Young People Discover and Love Your Church
The Fuller Youth Institute’s 2016 book Growing Young profiles innovative churches that are engaging 15- to 29-year-olds and as a result are growing—spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically—in a way that breathes life into the whole church. This workshop introduces six strategies to help your church begin “growing young.”

Sharing stories of God at work in our lives deepens the faith of those who tell the stories and those who hear them. This workshop will explore ways to help your church become a community where storytelling is a deep, rich, natural pathway to a growing faith.

Before making changes in your church, it’s important to understand how your congregation’s culture develops and grows. In this workshop participants learn to use a variety of lenses and tools to describe their congregational culture and navigate change within that context.
