Ministry Relearned

Abstract: 
Faced with a group of potential members from a new generation who drifted away after finding the church wanting, Robert Kyte employed his time on sabbatical to ask whether there is a future for the traditional “name brand” (Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopal, Lutheran, UCC) American Protestant churches. What do adults aged 45 and under look for in a church? Do they look for a church at all? What are some mainline churches doing differently that causes them to thrive, and what do pastors need to learn and practice now?
