Ministry is Bigger Than a Group or Club

According to Paul Jarzembowski, a strong young adult ministry does not ignore the newcomer. Make sure to avoid making your ministry an exclusive club:

Young Adult Ministry is bigger than a group or club. While forming small faith networks are a good component to this ministry, sometimes they can become an exclusive club. And when we get friendly or comfortable with the same group of people, we can forget about evangelizing and ignore the newcomers. It’s best to avoid calling your program a “young adult group.” Instead, call it a “Young Adult Ministry” and remember the three components: evangelization, discipleship, and integration.
