Young Adult Ministry in a Box experts Amy McEntee and Nora Bradbury Haehl advise a balanced approach to ministry. It is important to strike a balance in order to build up a well-attended young adult ministry:
Young adults often have opportunities to be social; they have fewer opportunities to deepen their spiritual lives. (Combining social and spiritual is terrific!) Young adult ministry events should TEACH, PRAY, and SERVE. When scheduling events, it’s important to offer opportunities for all three of these areas, with social opportunities built in or mixed in. The relationships built through social gatherings will often populate the other events.
