Who Is Considered a Young Adult?

Young adults are  in their late teens (18+), through their twenties, who represent diverse cultural, racial, ethnic, educational, vocational, social, political, and spiritual backgrounds. They are college students, workers, and professionals; they are in military service; they are single, married, divorced, or widowed; they are with or without children; they are newcomers in search of a better life through a relationship with Jesus.
