Engaging Young Adults Initiative

Helping you connect with young adults
Engaging young adults is significant in our culture and a priority for congregations. Many Indiana congregations are grappling with how to include and engage this generation. The current generation of young adults is large and far from homogeneous, and congregational settings vary widely across Indiana – urban, rural, small town. So there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. The EYA initiative will help you engage young adults in your own community and context.

Engaging Young Adults education
Educational opportunities to assist congregations in engaging young adults are available to all congregations in Indiana. Click here for a resource guide, including on-demand learning opportunities. There are also a number of excellent resources at the Congregational Resource Guide (CRG). Search young adults.
