The Lilly Endowment has charged us to spend the next 4 years spreading the news (PACE NW) of what we have learned in our work, while continuing to listen (Pivot NW) and sharpen the ideas that we hope will make the church more hospitable to 20-somethings now and into the future.

5 Things You Can Do Right Now

Elevate young adults to areas of leadership in the congregation (where budget-making decisions occur).
Collect and listen to stories about your church from people of various generations/populations.
Budget for and implement a program for intergenerational relationship building. Include reciprocal (or "reverse") mentorship and vulnerability.
Create and support ($$$) a space for young adults to grow in faith together.
Build a young adult initiative team at your church.
