Publisher's Description

Why do so many young adults (18 to 22) leave the church, and what will it take to bring them back? This important question is examined and duly answered in Essential Church?, a follow-up to Thom S. Rainer’s best-selling Simple Church cowritten this time with his son, research expert Sam Rainer. The book is based on a study of one-thousand so-called "church dropouts" who were interviewed about why they left. Their answers are quite surprising, having less to do with "losing their religion" and more about the desire for a community that isn’t made stale by simply maintaining the status quo. In turn, the Rainers offer churches four concrete solutions toward making their worship community an essential part these young people’s lives again:  

Simplify - develop a clear structure and process for making disciples. 
Deepen - provide strong biblical teaching and preaching. 
Expect - let members know the need for commitment to the congregation. 
Multiply - emphasize evangelism, outward focus, and starting new churches.

    An excellent book for all churches to use in understanding how to prepare youth for the life changes ahead of them. Church members must see and know the importance of the church as God intended it in the life of the believer. This is extremely helpful in helping to connect and minister to college/young adults and in seeking to reconnect the dechurched to the local body of believers.

    I found this book very enlightening. I have passed my copy to a member of our youth team and have recommended our pastor search team review as well. Some redundancy with material from SIMPLE CHURCH.
