We Are STL Young Adults
Influence Magazine | Ten Steps to Building a Successful Young Adult Ministry
Men and women in their late teens, twenties, and thirties are among the least active voters in the United States, but they can also be among the most passionate and energetic Americans on a variety of issues. Furthermore, over the last several years, these young adults have been increasingly involved in volunteer work and community organizing movements across the country. The decisions we make as citizens about who leads us and what policies are enacted have important moral and ethical dimensions. The values of our faith should be our guide to public life. When developing activities and educational programs, those who work with young adults should be aware of trends such as declining church attendance and involvement in parish life and a widening gap between Church teaching and beliefs or perceptions of young adults. Programs for young adults should include both a rich catechetical component and a strong evangelization component.

Josiah Kennealy on February 28, From my vantage point, more churches are making intentional efforts to reach to year-olds. Across the nation, a variety of models are working to engage and equip young adults to become a part of the lifeblood of the local church. The focus is to go make disciples, who make disciples, who make disciples.
What does the Bible say about? Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth. Walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes.
