Product Description

Many churches and families have programmed a youth ministry finish line at twelfth grade. They walk their seniors out the door, breathe a sigh of relief, and let them disappear for a few years. There is an assumption they'll return to church later, as adults with young families.

The problem is, many never come back. Too old for youth group and uncomfortable with labels, college-aged Christians become disconnected from faith. They become less and less involved in church and faith and, eventually, absent altogether-they slowly fade away. Facing critical decisions that affect the rest of their lives, college-aged people need a faith community more than ever.

Coauthors Reggie Joiner, Chuck Bomar, and Abbie Smith-a senior pastor, a college pastor, and a twentysomething-rethink one-on-one mentorship as the way to end the slow fade. They offer insights and suggestions that will help anyone get started fighting the fade.

Publisher's Description

Many churches and families have programmed a youth ministry finish line at twelfth grade. They walk their seniors out the door, breathe a sigh of relief, and let them disappear for a few years. There is an assumption they’ll return to church later, as adults with young families.

Many never come back. They become less and less involved in church and faith and, eventually, absent altogether—they slowly fade away. Facing critical decisions that affect the rest of their lives, college-aged people need a faith community more than ever.

A senior pastor, a college pastor, and a twenty-something rethink one-on-one mentorship as the way to end the slow fade. They offer insights and suggestions that will help anyone get started fighting the fade.

    As a twentysomething longing for the church to pick up some slack in this area, I found this book to be refreshing. I would love to get it in to many people's hands. I wouldn't consider the book too light on sharing Christ with this age group. It's about connecting with our lives and our lives being so founded in Christ that it's a natural flow. It's a quick read with some great connecting resources that I think go beyond just 20somethings.

    The Slow Fade addresses the very important reality that most of our church-going young people will stop going to church in college, and advises mature believers about how to stop the exodus. Positively, this team of writers encourages every adult to get passionate about investing in one person." Negatively, Slow Fade enthusiastically promotes a God who loves them, is for them, and died for them, but that much else about God is beyond our capacity to know.The truth is that we know plenty about God; He wrote a book! Strong on the need to build relationships but weak on the need to infuse those relationship with person of Christ, Slow Fade misses the mark. Other than providing some ice-breaker ideas for those beyond the twentysomething age bracket, Slow Fade offers little toward stopping the exodus. If you can only read one book this month I dont recommend Slow Fade.
