Emerging adults today feel homeless and alone. How can the church share the good news of a God who offers home and togetherness?
Home Together gives a compelling account of a Christian student residence that has shared this good news by engaging emerging adults in a community of discipleship and belonging. For over thirty years, the Menno Simons Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia has supported university students and helped them to grow together in their faith.
Using the metaphor of home to describe this community, Thomas Bergen outlines a practical theology of ministry among emerging adults as a shared home construction project. He explores six aspects of the Menno Simons Centre as home—spiritual, supportive, sabbatical, safe, spurring, and sending—combining theological reflection, cultural analysis, personal testimonies, and practical wisdom.
Set against the backdrop of postmodern challenges, Home Together offers an inspiring model of ministry among university students that might well be adapted for other contexts.
