Plan Now to Share in Their Lives

First third of life statistic graphic



Six out of ten youth will walk away from their faith sometime in their 20s. The Pentecost Offering is devoted to ministries that support our young people during their first third of life, the time from childhood through young adulthood, helping them build lifelong connections to their faith, churches, and communities.

The first third of life is a time when spirituality, emotional health, cognitive development, and relationships take shape, influencing ideas and actions well into the future. This is a time when the church, and you, can nurture and guide our youth by sharing with them God’s good news and our very lives to lead them on a path towards a bright and faith-led future.

Get involved. Speak with your congregation about the ministries supported by the Offering.
