Sticky Faith: Practical Ideas to Deepen Your Ministry with Young People

Why is it that almost 1 out of 2 of your graduating seniors will pick up their diplomas and ditch their faith? For those young people who remain connected to Jesus, what is it that makes the difference? And what can we do every week throughout their time in our ministry to help teenagers develop faith that sticks into adulthood? We’ll take a practical look at deep research conducted by the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) with over 500 students just like yours as well as follow-up research on families and churches. Together we’ll unearth some of the toxic myths your students believe about the gospel, the church, their family, and your youth ministry that cause them to shelve their faith.  (Session 5)
