When Maria started attending her middle school youth group, she had a rough time. The transition was particularly hard because she didn’t have any friends at church.
Although she was likable and loved God, she still felt excluded. Eventually her parents gave in and Maria dropped out of youth group and, ultimately, church altogether.
Unfortunately, Maria’s story is not unique.
The transition into new ministries is a crucial inflection point. Those who transition poorly are at a great risk of dropping out of church.
