Churches that want to reach young people don’t actually have young people involved in any visible roles. No young staff members teaching from the stage. Few young greeters or leaders of groups. No young musicians or singers. Little if any imagery of young families on their websites. (Relevant imagery on church websites is hugely lacking… but that’s another blog post.)The message you send is very clear to a 20 or 30-something: We want you to come and absorb what we’re dishing out, but we don’t want your ideas, your creativity, your culture or your interests affecting what we have going on.
