How do I pass on my faith to my children?

How do I pass on my faith to my children when they don’t respond to the things I find most meaningful about my faith? And what can I do now that my child is walking away from the faith? Two out of every three youth group graduates will drop out of church for at least a year between 18 and 23. One third will leave the faith and not come back. But there’s some amazing research that shows us what works and what pushes young people away.

Saving Sex for Marriage

Is it even possible for young people to save sex for marriage when they don’t marry until age twenty-eight?

The spiritual strengths and temptations of each of the four generations

Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation Xers, and Millennials--we can’t relate to, love on, get along with, or most importantly reach and minister to other generations as well unless we understand their inherent spiritual strengths and vulnerabilities. Even more importantly, millions from each of the generations stay spiritually stuck because they to understand the temptations to which they are particularly vulnerable. Here are the spiritual temptations I address.

• Traditionalists: purposeless retirement and past over future orientation.

• Baby Boomers: giving psychology greater regard than Scripture for help in living daily life and church hopping.

• Gen Xers: cynicism and believing the philosophy “it may be true for you, but it’s not true for me”.

• Millennials: misapplying “judge not” in the name of diversity and the over focus on the kingdom of God at the expense of the church.

Is Christianity really going to be dead in three generations?

With Pew’s major report about the Nones all over the news and again on the front cover of USA Today yesterday, the people of faith are worried. And that leads to a bunker mentality or panic. It’s the question I get asked question most often and it opens wonderful conversations for what Christians can do in a pluralistic world where we no longer have home-field advantage.

Why won’t the younger generations come to our church?

Because that’s the wrong question.

How does our church keep the youngest and the oldest generations both happy?

We’ve never faced five generations of church before and we are struggling to figure out what to do. But if we don’t figure out what to do with the older generations, we will never reach the Millennials.

Workshop topics for church leaders and staff

•Emerging Adulthood: the Secret to Reaching Millennials. The new life stage between 18-28 that is changing everything in our culture, or workforces, and why the church isn’t holding onto or reaching the Millennials like we could. For example, one simple restructuring in the way we do youth ministry could reduce by half the number of youth ministry graduates who drop out of church.

• My Church Won’t Let Me Help. Why retired Baby Boomers from upper management positions volunteer their time and give their greatest financial gifts to secular nonprofits or parachurch organizations rather than to their local church. And what to do about it.

• What It Takes to Reach the Nones?

• Working through the Predictable Sticking Points on a Multi-Generational Staff.

Parenting Twentysomethings

There are no Christian parenting books on the new life stage of emerging adulthood, from ages 18 – 28. That’s why my book "Sticking Points" dedicates three chapters to helping parents and their twentysomethings work their way through their relationship, faith, and sexuality.
