"Anybody who participates in any kind of faith community can see that church is changing. There is a quantum shift. The old communal narratives and patterns of engagement are no longer adequate for the world in which we live. ...what I see YTI doing is teaching young people how to be thoughtful citizens in that new commons. Learning how to do this is the only thing that’s going to help the church be relevant in this new reality."
