What Would It Take For Youth To Come to Church?

Church leadership is at a significant turning point. The author, Wayne Townsend, brings together much of the research, literature, and street level youth opinion about the social context of churches. This is a significant body of work predicting the demise of the structure and social processes of church as we see it today unless there is social innovation from within and divine intervention.
He begins his research by interviewing youth in parking lots and asking them, "What would it take for you to come to church?" He takes their responses and then posts them as questions on the internet for more youth to answer. These responses are outlined in this book with the intention to "give youth a voice."
This book offers solutions to the decline of the church.
