Hope College Receives Over $450,000 Grant to Focus on Reconnecting Youth to Church

Hope College, a Christian college located in Holland Michigan said that the program’s approach is to work with churches to focus on millennials and young adults who no longer take part in faith based organizations, and reconnect them. Hope College stated in a press release that “as the project runs, the youth-adult teams at the churches will identify and begin working on problems that interest them within church or community.” 
 
Virgil Gulker, servant-leader in residence with Hope’s Center for Leadership and the program director for the new project, stated that “it is time to suggest a practical strategy to move church leaders from frustrated awareness to an action plan designed to not simply retain youth and older adults but to actually attract and engage them.”
