Reaching People Under 40 While Keeping People Over 60
“Reaching People Under 40 While Keeping People Over 60” was the first in a series of webinars in our new Churchnet Leadership Series offered through our online Training Hub. The first workshop was held on May 12 and provided an overview of a book by Eddie Hammett entitled “Reaching People Under 40 While Keeping People Over 60.” We are delighted that Eddie was available to lead the session.
The May 12th webinar (Reaching People Under 40 While Keeping People Over 60) introduced the eight basic concepts from Eddie’s book. Eddie also shared practical tips on implementing these concepts in your local church. Creating win/win for all generations, finding and discovering the remnant, and changing values so you can change structures are only a few of the concepts he introduced. The video archive of the event is provided below.
