An alarming number of adolescent Christians disengage with the church shortly after high school graduation. Any revitalization effort must address this phenomenon. Jenny Smith will make a presentation on the urgent need to address this problem holistically through family ministry. Church leaders and revitalizers need to know how to plan ministries that draw parents and children together instead of driving them apart (Mal. 4:6; Luke 1:17). If we do not make family ministry a priority, we will continue to see an ever-declining death rate in churches.
