Customer Reviews for Essential Church? Reclaiming a Generation of Dropouts
Review 1 for Essential Church? Reclaiming a Generation of Dropouts
Date:August 27, 2009
An excellent book for all churches to use in understanding how to prepare youth for the life changes ahead of them. Church members must see and know the importance of the church as God intended it in the life of the believer. This is extremely helpful in helping to connect and minister to college/young adults and in seeking to reconnect the dechurched to the local body of believers.

I found this book very enlightening. I have passed my copy to a member of our youth team and have recommended our pastor search team review as well. Some redundancy with material from SIMPLE CHURCH.
