With a unique mix of humor, illustrations, and research findings based on a nationwide study of black young adults, this practical resource equips church leaders with a profile of black millennials that will help churches continue to effectively attract and make disciples of this emerging generation of young adults. Drawing on the biblical narrative of Matthew 14, where Jesus invites Peter to come meet him on the water, this book includes specific ministry principles and programming proposals for use in the local congregation.
