United Prayer Rising: Jakarta 2019

United Prayer Rising: Jakarta 2019

We are quick to lament the declining numbers of young adults who are active in our churches or even give the church and Christ a second thought. We describe them as apathetic, filling their lives with a busyness that doesn’t satisfy.  A truer assessment is that this description applies to every generation and locale down […]
