We think that the key to the future of the church is rebuilding trust with the next generation. But that means some things need to change. We think churches who will impact the future will . . .

Lead volunteers like they’re humans with a life outside of serving the church.
Respect parents like they’re humans raising humans.
Learn from humans who do not look or think the same way you do.
Model what it looks like to be human for a generation who is watching.
Leverage technology as a positive and practical way for humans to connect with humans.
Advocate for humans who are marginalized and hurting.
Change what needs to be changed to help every human trust God and each other.

We have to understand that as much as we need to innovate and change, we’ve got to do it in the context of rebuilding trust with the people in our communities and the people in our churches.
