This project/thesis focuses on young adults in general and in the Kerrville Church of Christ in particular. The problem is young adults between the ages of twenty-five to thirty-five comprise less than ten percent of the congregation. In a church of 500 members, there are not more than thirty-five individuals in that age range. The perception on the part of young adults i the congregation is that the church leadership does not value them, nor do leaders consider their opinions to be important. The solution to the problem involves analyzing the congregation, forming a focus group among young adult members, and working together with them to develop a strategy for increasing the participation of young adults in the life of the church. The research involves studies in generational theories, life-cycle theories, and church effectiveness.
