Inspirational Stories

How are we working strategically to release young adults into missional ministry across Baptists Together?

Hearing the voice of young adults is highly desirable, if not essential, amongst our churches. Indeed, the challenge of reaching adults aged 18-35 was identified as one of six priorities by our Baptist Union Council in November 2018.

Within Baptists Together, there are some inspirational examples of engaging with young adults on a local level. But all too often the voices these voices haven't been heard on a national level, until recently.

In response to this concern, the theme of our Summer 2020 Baptists Together magazine was 'Reaching and Raising Young Adults'.  This magazine has a great selection of inspiring articles from and about this 'missing generation'. Articles from the magazine, and other stories from young adults in our churches are listed below:
