The statistics are troubling. A large percentage of graduating seniors end up struggling deeply with their faith in college. Unfortunately, the things churches often try, in an attempt to combat this, fall into the category of “too little, too late”.
The effort to develop a faith that sticks within our children begins now, and it involves the church and parents partnering together.
The Fuller Youth Institute has conducted an extensive study of this trend, and has published a book called Sticky Faith, that contains a lot of practical ideas on developing a faith that sticks. The book, along with other great resources, can be found at stickyfaith.org.
We think this book is so valuable that we want to give away 5 electronic copies of it. These e-versions can be read in either the Kindle or Nook e-readers (or their corresponding apps on your smart phone).
The first 5 people to leave a comment on this post will win a free copy. All you need to do is answer this question in your comment: “What was valuable to you, or would have been valuable to you, as a teenager in building a lasting faith?“
