You need two things to build a thriving Gen X or Net Gen Ministry � The desire to do it and this book.
GETTING REAL has all the information you need to begin an effective young adult ministry. It offers an essential overview of Gen X and the Net Gen, providing valuable insight into how they think and what they need. Along with real life examples, it presents essential principles that often spell the difference between a healthy ministry and a group that never gets off the ground.
In GETTING REAL, the authors � Baugh, a Gen Xer, and Hurst, a Boomer � write from their own experience with young adults as well as their extensive research and interaction with ministry leaders from the United States and abroad. Their direct, personal style will encourage and guide you through the process of building your own effective ministry.
