John Ginnan assists churches to engage the young people of New York as the director of YouthAliveNY. This program provides church leadership, networks, and resources to grow a movement of students reaching students for Christ.
In 2019 Barna Research determined that the top 8 post-Christian communities were in the NorthEast US, with 2 areas, the Capital Region and Rochester being located in New York State. In 2020, Barna also noted the Gen Z students have unique ways of expressing themselves and their faith.
John's work is crucial for our young people to learn to express their faith in ways that are comfortable for them and relevant to their friends. Alive in 5, Engaging Conversations, and Campus Clubs all help youth reach youth in their schools and communities.
