From Paul Jarzembowski, Young Adult Ministry in a Box Expert Team:
Take time to learn the various cultural and generational nuances in your area so that you can minister effectively. But, believe it or not, there is actually an upside to all this complexity: the diversity means that there is a bigger pool of young adults out there than you might have ever realized. If all the registered or active young adults in the parish look eerily similar to one another, it might be a sign that you need to expand your outreach to include a more diverse demographic.
