More than numbers… but a snapshot of the young at The Kids of 2020 (Dale Hudson in ChurchLeaders).

In case you were wondering what LEA has done/is doing to help teachers and administrators during the COVID-19 challenges… See a Teachers to Teachers discussion by Mike Schiemann and Kim Marxhausen—
Survive and Thrive: God’s Plan for Growth in Times of Challenge—that focuses on the God-given blessings that accompany such challenges. Mike showed his staff how broadening the view of problems helps solve them while also focusing on Jesus and the joy of what He accomplished on the cross (Hebrews 12:1-3).
