Abstract
Young families represent growth and the future of our church, yet they are often the most difficult to reach. The author of this project researched the various reasons why these young families are or are not involved in the life of a congregation. By interviewing them directly, compiling the information, and looking for patterns, he then offers advice for church leaders. Using H. Richard Niebuhr's Christ and Culture as a guide, he created his own paradigm "Culture and Christ" by inversing the patterns and starting with Culture. The project is both thorough and extremely informative in addressing the needs of this demographic.
