Growing Young - Involving, Retaining Young People

Churches are concerned about reaching and keeping youth and young adults. Our congregations are aging and we are looking for the latest tip or program to help our churches grow - especially with young families. You will learn about these shifts at the upcoming Growing Young Conference, sponsored by CBF of North Carolina, at  First Baptist Church in Mocksville on August 18 . You will find more details and registration on  our website .


Are you interesting in learning even more about Growing Young strategies? Join the  NC Growing Young Cohort  for two in-person summits, regular online webinars, one year of personalized coaching, and access to the church-wide version of the Growing Young Assessment.  Learn more here .
