||This is a 3-year project to produce information, strategies, and concepts churches can use in dealing with challenges presented by contemporary young adults. It is well established that there has been a change in young adults since the 1970s; for example, fewer individuals in the 18-29 age group regularly attend religious services or identify with a particular denomination. Beneath these surface facts, church leaders recognize a host of other changes that characterize today’s young adults. For instance, they are averse to doctrinal truth, seeking instead a direct and authentic relationship with God. This study of young adults involves both survey and ethnographic research. There are a variety of research possibilities, such as creating Web surveys, holding focus groups, participant observation, Internet social networking, and in-depth study of young adult ministries.
