In Real Time

Authentic Young Adult Ministry as It Happens

Thom S. Rainer (Foreword by), Mike Glenn (Author)

Publisher: B&H Publishing Group


Research shows that churches are seeing a dramatic decrease in the membership of 18 to 34 year-olds. One major cause traces back to when the gospel was watered down to a non-confrontational level for baby boomers, resulting in a generation that proclaimed faith without changing its lifestyle. Now many among that generation’s children feel less endeared to the church if not suspicious of its worth considering their parents’ conflicting beliefs and actions.

As the need for relevant young adult ministry programs increases, the best example of a successful one in action today is Kairos, a weekly worship gathering of more than one thousand young single and married people in Nashville. Real Time tells the story of how this ministry unfolded, and its overriding message is one that churches everywhere can take to heart and apply.

“Young adults are serious about life. They want basic and straight,” writes Kairos pastor Mike Glenn. “In the church, we have thought people were bored with the basic message, but in fact, they have never heard the gospel at all.”
