  • Small groups. Make holistic small groups a major component of the regular church life. Have young adults take part in the initial training and lead out in the formation of new groups.
  • Share a meal and form visitation teams. You could have the young adult Sabbath School class invite all the elders out to a Saturday evening dinner at a restaurant with the purpose of the elders getting acquainted with the young people, and to form teams for visitation. 
  • Retreats. Have spiritual retreats each year for young adults.
  • Bible Study Training.
  • Mentoring Spiritual Devotions.  Mentor young people in spiritual devotions. Teach them how to build and maintain a successful and vibrant personal devotional life.
