Emerging Adults, Emerging Worship

We are currently observing a new phenomenon within the development of young adults: emerging adulthood, which spans the ages of 18 to 29, marked by unprecedented options for education, work and career choices, delayed marriage and family life, and remarkable geographic mobility.


We are currently observing a new phenomenon within the development of young adults: emerging adulthood, which spans the ages of 18 to 29 (or even later), marked by unprecedented options for education, work and career choices, delayed marriage and family life, and remarkable geographic mobility. At the same time, emerging adults are also more self-focused, confused, and anxious than previous generations of “young adults.” This session will provide a definition of emerging adulthood and why this matters for the church, especially in regard to how our churches worship.

Presented at the 2012 Calvin Symposium on Worship.
