Sticky Faith Stories
If you’re over 40, college now is different than it was for you. If you’re over 30, same thing. In fact, if you’re over 25, it’s still pretty different.
When we began to evaluate our ministry this past year in regards to some of the preliminary Sticky Faith findings, we realized that we basically did little to nothing in the way of preparing our students for the transition into college.
We’re seeking to help our graduates walk across the bridge from adolescence to adulthood and from a high school youth group to adult ministry opportunities in healthy ways.
Kim was confused and started to wonder if the faith we had taught her in high school was true.
What if every student attending our program took time to write a story of future hope? And what would happen if they shared those stories of future hope with each other?
After thirty-four years of youth ministry, this made for a unique experience to encourage and challenge a church toward a new mindset for not only student ministries, but for their entire church family.
We all have a choice when we want to bring about change, whether the change is related to Sticky Faith or not: we can swing for the fences, or we can just try to get on base and hope to cross home at some point.
