Steve Carter :: What do I do if there are no young people in my church?

  • “It’s a really, really hard thing, and I think that’s a really sad thing,” says Steve Carter, Teaching Pastor and Director of Evangelism at Willow Creek Community Church. One of the unfortunate side effects of churches’ need for young people is competition, which can be toxic for both the church and the young person. “What’s been helpful for us is to have this nonprofit…that kind of holds all the churches together.” Find a worthy, relevant cause to both engage young people and unite your neighboring churches.
