What is Feed?

Feed is a community of leaders and innovators who are dedicated to seeing youth ministries in North America succeed in raising up the next generation of Christians. We propose a new way of thinking and going about youth ministry in the local church that has been specifically tailored to the unique characteristics and spiritual needs of today’s youth – Gen Z.

Designed by and for the local church, Feed products are aimed at rethinking youth ministry by addressing the specific needs of today’s youth in a way that is relatable and relevant.

We gather and learn from church leaders, ministry practitioners, and innovative thinkers who work directly with young people.

What is the Feed way of thinking?

Our research-driven strategy to engage teens in the local church is anchored in three core values:

Open and honest dialogue

We believe teens need a welcoming space to bring their hard questions and doubts about God, the world, and themselves.

Robust Scripture engagement

Teens need to be invited to actively engage with God’s Word to help them build a foundation of faith in the midst of a post-truth culture.

Outcome-based ministry models

We affirm the value of using biblically shaped goals to design our ministry activity, measuring both progress and failure.
