If your church is missing the twenties to thirties age group, sadly you are not alone. This is the common story across the UK. There are many reasons why this is the case, but it causes the church a serious problem… and the consequences of ignoring it will be seen in the years to come with dying, ageing and empty churches.So what can we do and how do we do it?

In this little book, Kay Mumford asks these very questions and begins to work through practical answers that will challenge, equip and enthuse you in your ministry with young adults. Kay has over 15 years of experience of battling against the trend that 20s – 30s ‘don’t do church’ – and though this book won’t give you every answer, it is designed to be a springboard that will refocus your vision and excite you about what God can do when we live out and teach His Word.

    Highly recommended

    Massive experience and wisdom are brought to bear brilliantly in a concise, readable, practical book.

    The practical examples and testimonies are especially valuable, as is Kay's sheer realism about young adult work in churches—it's vital and this book shows good ways to begin and develop such work in local churches

    Missing Generation - Tim Hodge, NZ. www.tscf.org.nz

    I've really appreciated Kay's work. She's very clear about the why as well as the how, acknowledge the huge societal shifts for 20s-30s in the western world. Lots of practical ideas to muse and try and I look forward to Kiwifying them both in my work with university students of all ages and in our local church with the wider young adults groups.
    Thanks Kay

    Authentic discipleship for 20s-30s

    This is an excellent book for evangelical churches wanting to minister more effectively to people in their 20s and 30s.

    Kay takes you through, step-by-step, how you might go about this, even if you currently have no-one of that age group in your church. Kay has worked for a well-renowned conservative evangelical church in the UK for many years, running a large 20s-30s ministry, so she really knows what she’s talking about.

    The real strengths of this book are:
    1) it’s short and easy to read - I read it in one sitting.
    2) it’s practical and has lots of creative ideas for ‘how to’ start or improve a 20s-30s ministry, rather than just telling you that you should. One idea I hadn't considered is using the church website to help Christians in their 20s/30s find a houseshare - this is useful if you have zero people in that age group. She gives you places to start from, even if you have few or no people of that age group.
    3) it is a good advert for discipleship done really well, sharing your life and the gospel with one another, being honest about the difficult things without shame or fear and spurring one another on to holiness. It is real and honest about the secret struggles of this age group.

    Definitely recommend.
