Search Institute, an internationally renowned source of data on things that really matter, decided they wanted to discover what elements support a child in becoming a successful adult. What they discovered was pretty surprising and became a manual titled “Prescription for a Healthy Church”.
What they found was that (surprise, surprise) “it takes a village”. They found that no matter the circumstance (poverty, location, etc.) that if the parents, grandparents, teachers and church organization work together to provide the needs and roles Search Institute determined necessary to develop qualities for success in adulthood, that’s exactly what occurred.
They also discovered that when this occurred it was also a prescription for a healthy church. A healthy, vibrant Youth and Family Ministry equals a healthy, vibrant church!
