Make faith matter more for 10 million teenagers over 10 years

The stakes are high. The opportunity is great.

We’re a diverse group of Jesus followers, a mosaic of cultures, ethnicities, beliefs, and backgrounds saying yes to follow where we believe God is already leading; A collaborative discipleship movement, rallying all parts of the Church to reimagine how we form the faith of young people — together.

Diverse

Jesus followers

We don’t agree on everything, but what we have in common is clear: Young people matter to God, the church, and us. Motivated by John 17:20-23, dozens of Christian leaders have prayed for three years about how God can use the unity of the body of Christ to accomplish what we could not achieve on our own.

Uniting

because young people matter to God

Energized by these hopes, a collaborative team of leaders from the Fuller Youth Institute, Life. Church, the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, Orange, Pinetops Foundation, and the Urban Youth Workers Institute is guiding TENx10's efforts to change how we disciple young people.
