Eugene, Oregon—11/18/13—Harvest House Publishers is privileged to partner with author Caleb Breakey as he encourages fellow Millennials to stay in church and gives away thousands of copies of his new book, Called to Stay. Breakey plans to give away 6,000 copies of Called to Stay during his grassroots tour in support of the book’s critically-needed message. His next major tour appearance will be at the National Youth Workers Convention in Nashville, Tennessee from November 22nd -24th.
Called to Stay, Caleb Breakey’s first book, arrives at a critical time for Millennials and the church. Reports from CNN to The Washington Post have weighed in on why today’s generation is leaving the church in droves. Called to Stay addresses the problem of Millennials leaving and the stark reality of why the church desperately needs them. Breakey himself was nearly one of those statistics. Instead, he chose to stay and engage his generation in a dialogue compelling them to do the same.
“Millennials are passionate about Christ, but feel they no longer see Jesus in the church,” Breakey says. “It’s time to stop running, though. We need to start doing what Jesus has commanded of us. We’re to love the church as Christ loved her, and help bring back stagnant believers who’ve wandered away from their first love.”
In addition to the grassroots tour and book giveaway, Breakey is seeking help from crowdsourcing site Rally.org to help spread the message of Called to Stay. Through Rally.org/calledtostay, he is hoping to convict others to partner with him as he moves forward with the incredible ministry Called to Stayhas delivered so far. “Rally.org is our plea for support. God is doing amazing things for this mission—and that excites us to no end,” Breakey emphasizes. “But this ministry only thrives with support from the body of Christ.We need others willing to take a stand and help us reach Millennials. We don’t want empty and abandoned churches to be the future for this generation.”
