Missionaries to the Next Generation

Bishop Hopkins speaks to young adults

By Bishop John L. Hopkins

When I was young, missionaries came from faraway places to share at our church.  I have since learned that our metaphor for mission work should not be geographical but generational.

Over the past several weeks I have met with young adults across East Ohio to understand how they began to follow Jesus and how they are continuing to live and grow in their faith. 

Read Bishop Hopkins’ observations from his conversations with young adults.
