Statistics show that over 75% of high school seniors leave the church after graduation. After freshman year in college or university, that number jumps to close to 90%. Of those who leave the church, only 30% come back later in adult life.
Many individual churches have come to embrace young adult ministry, but plenty have not. Children's ministry, youth ministry, and family ministry are the primary focus in most bodies, and the ever expanding "young adult" age group (between youth and young family) is a need not being met. We believe that the church as a whole could be doing so much more to answer tough questions, engage young adults in community and mentor the next generation of leaders.
What is Kinship?
Kinship exists to connect young adults to each other and the greater church family.
We want to provide a safe and spirit-filled space where you can come and meet with God and His church. This time is here to allow Him to reinstill value and purpose into your life.
Kinship 2022 and COVID-19
Kinship exists to connect young adults to each other and the greater church family, and we believe that the best way to do that is in person. With COVID numbers rising as rapidly as they are, we as a Kinship team do not believe it is safe to meet in person this year. While an online conference is possible, we believe it won't capture the heart of the conference. After prayerful consideration, Kinship 2022 will be postponed until January of 2023.
