Across the nation, most of the people working in children's ministry are parents and grandparents. Teens and twentysomethings are notoriously absent, not only from children's ministry, but from ministry in general. Could this be because--like automakers that discovered the median car-buyer was 50 years old--we've missed the younger audience with our recruiting efforts? Learning what central values are important to the next generation will help your church develop a recruiting strategy that attracts the young as well as old into your children's ministry.

This tool is adapted from "Find and Keep Next Gen Volunteers," a PromiseLand Conference workshop by Amy Dolan. PromiseLand is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.
