Lasting Faith Equipping Event

You’re Invited to Our Next Equipping Event!

Lasting Faith: Equipping Teens for Life Beyond Student Ministry: You love teenagers. You love seeing young people grow in faith and mature into healthy adulthood. You also know that it is not easy work. Recent research suggests that many young people are leaving the church in droves. One study indicated that over 60% of teenagers stop attending church after high school!

Have we truly prepared young people for life after youth group?

Do we need a radical shift in student ministry practices? Are there any small changes that can make a big difference? Let’s explore these questions, together, and think through “best practices” for nurturing faith in young people. Join us for an important dialogue about equipping teens for life beyond our student ministries.
