How does a church make young people such a big priority without excluding other groups?
Prioritizing young people and their families does not mean that a congregation ignores senior adults and their relational and spiritual concerns. But sometimes it does mean tough choices about resource allocation. Based on stories from churches growing young, when big decisions are made about dedicating more funding, staff, or space to young people, these changes are made by multiple generations who share a common commitment to teenagers and emerging adults. We asked one group of high school students in a 150-year-old congregation why the senior adults care about them so much that they are willing to make changes to welcome them. They replied, “The older people see that we want to be here, so they want us to be here.” Here and in other congregations, we saw a mutual respect and mutual need that permeated conversations with young and old alike. Adults weren’t forced to focus on young people; they chose to do so. – Growing Young, P. 216
