Product Description

Churches in America don't wield the same influence they once did. With 52 percent of Protestant churches on the decline and more than two-thirds of young adults dropping out of church, many leaders are wondering how their churches can engage the next generation more effectively.

The good news is that young adults are likely to stay in church if they see it as essential to their lives. In the book Essential Church, Thom and Sam Rainer outline four principles practiced by churches that have become essential to young adults: multiply, simplify, deepen, expect.

This five-chapter workbook, a companion to Essential Church, provides practical tools for assessing your church's current reality and for implementing the principles of an essential church in your setting. Step-by-step instructions, strategic worksheets, and supplemental online tools will help you build a church that will be essential to the lives of young adults in your community.
