20 Nov Episode 128: Creating a Church Family for Kids & Students
In this episode, I talk with author and pastor, Chap Clark. Chap has written many books and taught extensively on how to create church that will reach the next generation. He and I have a conversation about his new book, Adoptive Church. Chap shares a lot of wisdom and practical steps churches can take to create environments where the next generation is not just taught faith, but is given a a place to belong and adopted into a family of faith.
