Here’s a 2-minute video featuring a few outstanding church leaders discussing their experiences with the Sticky Faith Cohort. Enjoy!
We here at the Fuller Youth Institute have a lot to be grateful for. This year we have seen so much blessing, but we couldn’t have done it without incredible friends like YOU.
Last week, a McDonalds in Australia started to play opera and classical music in order to prevent teenage loitering. Apparently too many young people were spending too much time at the fast food restaurant so its management decided to use Mozart and Bach to get rid of the teens.
Can the good news of God’s abundance be trusted in the face of the story of scarcity? In this odd season where our culture simultaneously tells us to produce dispositions of gratitude while also obsessing over shopping for (and posturing at) holiday gatherings where we feel the opposite…this question whispers a haunting undertone.
We're glad you asked! The FYI team will be around Youth Specialties’ National Youth Workers Convention in Nashville and would love to say howdy. Hit the jump for a few ways to connect with us!
Let’s face it: it’s depressing to read about the number of kids who lose their faith and walk away from church in young adulthood. After reading countless articles and books, I get it—youth ministry as we’ve known it is in trouble. To be perfectly honest, sometimes this story makes it feel like there’s not much hope in youth ministry anymore.
A few weeks ago, I had the chance to sit with Mark and find out why he’s been willing to invest his time in Cohort churches. We at FYI would love for you to hear his words and pass them on to your ministry team and pastor as you consider joining our next Sticky Faith Cohort.
