About this title


"The church needs young adults and young adults need the church," the authors assert. This book is a call to respond to both of those needs--to challenge the African American church to reach out to the lost generation of young adults and to equip congregations with the insights and tools needed to teach the gospel to the postmodern, post-civil rights, post-soul generation. Acknowledging that young adulthood now encompasses ages 18-39, Ralph Watkins and Benjamin Stephens explore the issues and offer the words of young adults themselves as testimony to the spiritual longing and critique of the aging church's ministry

About the Author:

Ralph Watkins, MA, DMin, PhD, is the assistant dean of African-American Church Studies and associate professor of Society, Religion and Africana Studies in the School of Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. His work is focused on building bridges between urban youth, young adults and the church while mentoring future leaders for the African-American church. He is author of the books I Ain't Afraid to Speak my Mind (Unity Council 2003) and The Gospel Remix: Reaching the Hip Hop Generation (Judson Press 2007).

Benjamin Stephens III, MDiv, is pastor to collegiate & young adults at the West Angeles Church of God in Christ, under the leadership of Bishop Charles E. Blake. Elder Stephens also serves the International Youth Department of the Church of God in Christ as the president of Young Men.
