One cannot over emphasizeon the importance of young people in the Church. In India this importance becomes even more augmented because of our demographics. India is a young nation; every third person in our cities today is a young person. The Church in India too reflects this reality and we as a Church, cannot afford to stay out of touch with the reality of young people’s lives and their issues.
This is why I am so glad that this research on the challenges of young people has been carried out by CLFA and its report is being published under the aegis of the Youth Commission of the Evangelical Fellowship of India. I commend this report wholeheartedly.
