Lakeside is one of twenty congregations participating in the North Carolina cohort of Growing Young, an initiative of Fuller Youth Institute, designed to help churches assess and transform their culture. Growing Young is focused on not only attracting younger people but also engaging the entire congregation to invest in deeper relationships and revitalized faith. Over the next two years, we will work together to grow a Jesus-centered community which shares a Gospel of grace and hope for people of all ages.
GROWING YOUNG IS HELPING US TO:
*Challenge young people (in fact, all people) with Jesus’ message in ways that inspire them
*Develop younger leaders intentionally through natural leadership opportunities
*Fuel an atmosphere of warmth where everyone feels welcome
*Become a better neighbor to those in our community
