In 2006 the NCLS survey established a need for relevant / innovative, visionary churches with strong leadership to engage with the younger generations who are distinctively missing from church life. 
The church needs to develop these core qualities and develop an ideology towards restructuring the societal commitment of the missing generations. However to do this successfully it will need to engage in a countercultural form of societal engineering. If they can successfully identify existing communal social markers and rites of passages which are inherently associated with this generation; they will be better placed to successfully engage with and replicate a place of communal belonging through creating alternative social markers and rites of passages.
