    Based on the National Study of Youth and Religion--the same invaluable data as its predecessor, Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers--Kenda Creasy Dean's compelling new book, Almost Christian, investigates why American teenagers are at once so positive about
    Christianity and at the same time so apathetic about genuine religious practice.

    In Soul Searching, Christian Smith and Melinda Lundquist Denton found that American teenagers have embraced a Moralistic Therapeutic Deism--a hodgepodge of banal, self-serving, feel-good beliefs that bears little resemblance to traditional Christianity. But far from faulting teens, Dean places
    the blame for this theological watering down squarely on the churches themselves. Instead of proclaiming a God who calls believers to lives of love, service and sacrifice, churches offer instead a bargain religion, easy to use, easy to forget, offering little and demanding less. But what is to be
    done? In order to produce ardent young Christians, Dean argues, churches must rediscover their sense of mission and model an understanding of being Christian as not something you do for yourself, but something that calls you to share God's love, in word and deed, with others. Dean found that the
    most committed young Christians shared four important traits: they could tell a personal and powerful story about God; they belonged to a significant faith community; they exhibited a sense of vocation; and they possessed a profound sense of hope. Based on these findings, Dean proposes an approach
    to Christian education that places the idea of mission at its core and offers a wealth of concrete suggestions for inspiring teens to live more authentically engaged Christian lives.

    Persuasively and accessibly written, Almost Christian is a wake up call no one concerned about the future of Christianity in America can afford to ignore.

    How to Inspire and Equip the Members of Your Church to Love and Serve Their Community

    Every pastor wants to impact their local community. 

    But pastors make up a small subset of the entire church, and many find themselves stretched too thin — especially now.

    More than four out of five pastors tell Barna they prefer lay initiatives to new church programs, but fewer than one in 10 pastors is confident that their church is good at developing new leaders.

    If you’re looking for ways to inspire and equip the people in your church to share God’s love with your community, we’d be honored to help. 

    Together with our partners at Lutheran Hour Ministries, we’ve set out to answer questions such as: 

    • What possibilities exist in the gifts of church members?
    • What motivates Christians to make a hopeful difference in their neighborhoods?
    • What’s the most fruitful way of connecting individual Christians with a heart for their neighbors to their community?
    • How do you build trust in communities where Christians and the Church don’t have a great reputation?
    • What’s the role of congregations and ministry leaders in this effort?

    We’ve combined careful research with insights from ministry leaders and packaged them all in a report called:

    Better Together: How Christians Can Be a Welcome Influence in Their Neighborhoods.

    You can raise up leaders in your congregation who will make a positive difference in the community. 

    It’s challenging work, but the results can be life changing — because in life and in ministry, we really are better together.
