How can our local churches engage or reengage younger generations, not with gimmicks, compromising the truth, or selling out, but by embracing the very heart of Christ’s gospel? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Efrem Smith. Efrem is the co-lead pastor of Midtown Church in Sacramento, California. Efrem has been an encouragement to so many pastors and ministry leaders. He’s written a number of books, including his latest, which is titled, “Church for Everyone.” Together, Efrem and Jason explore the kingdom opportunities arising among young people, even in the midst of declining church engagement. Efrem shares from his personal ministry experiences how to connect with emerging generations at the heart level and invite them to immerse themselves in a cause that truly matters.
