Thanks to Andrew for the invitation to join this team.
I never thought I'd say this, but it's an exciting time to be a Mennonite. Churchwide the question of raising up young leaders and reaching unchurched young adults has reached a fever pitch. I'm pretty convinced this time of transition from the modern world means creating new spaces for young leaders and young adults. A hearty welcome into existing churches may work for some, but the vast majority of the emerging culture simply will not connect to existing congregations in my denomination (big news flash to most of you, right?)
Pray that God will strengthen my voice on this subject, and that those with ears will hear.
