Watch “Reaching Younger People: Overinvesting in the Young”

Dr. Janice Riggle Huie, a retired bishop of the United Methodist Church now serving with the Texas Methodist Foundation, addresses the challenge of reaching younger people. She explains how the “pipeline” that used to transport young people through children’s, youth, and campus ministry, and then back into local congregations as spiritually mature adults is now “full of cracks and leaks.” The church can only recover if it is willing to “over invest” resources and leadership capital on the young.
