Relentless Endeavor was born out of a loss. After working with high schoolers for 30 years, seeing them come to faith, watching them grow in knowledge and passion for the Lord, we were also watching them leave.
Leave their friends
Leave their churches
Leave their faith
It is heartbreaking. These amazing young people with so much energy for God are gone. Oh, they are still around: in jobs, raising families, spending time on hobbies and new friends. But they are not part of the family of God anymore.
And they are not alone. More than 8 million young people who used to be a part of the church are no longer there. (Barna, 2011) The reasons are varied, but the fact remains that they are gone.
Can you imagine how different the Church would be if we had 8 million more?
Eight million more parents raising children to know the Lord.
Eight million more coworkers, neighbors, professionals, leaders in our country living out the gospel?
Eight million more brothers and sisters in Christ, gifted by the Holy Spirit increasing the reach of the Church and sharing God’s message of love?
This is why we are ON a Relentless Endeavor. We disciple, equip, and encourage those who are with us now, so they will not choose to walk away, too. We reach out to those who have left and seek to bring them back.
It’s a huge mission. But it’s God’s heart.
Will you join us on this Relentless Endeavor?
