  • Can I Ask That?: 8 Hard Questions About God & Faith (Leader Guide)

    Amazon YS Store

    Teenagers are tired of vague, superficial, or nonexistent answers to their tough questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity. Just when they’re capable of diving into the deep end of their faith, all too often the church keeps them splashing around in shallow waters. As eight years of Sticky Faith research has shown, it’s not doubt or hard questions that are toxic to faith. It’s silence.

    Designed for use in small groups alongside the Can I Ask That Student Guide.

  • The Sticky Faith Guide for Your Family: Over 100 Practical and Tested Ideas to Build Lasting Faith i

    Amazon

    The Sticky Faith Guide for Your Family addresses one of the top current concerns about youth and the church: the reality that nearly half of all young people raised in Christian families walk away from their faith when they graduate from high school. That’s the bad news. But here’s the good news: research also shows that parents are one of the primary influences on their child’s faith.

    This book arises from the innovative, research-based, and extensively field-tested project known as “Sticky Faith,” designed to equip parents with insights and ideas for nurturing long-term faith in children and young people. Because of the Fuller Youth Institute’s six years of research with more than 500 young people, 100 churches, and 50 families, four of this guidebook’s unique qualities make it a “must have” for families eager to point their young people toward long-term faith

    First, it’s grounded in sophisticated, academically verified data. While Dr. Powell is a parent of three children who authentically weaves her own experiences throughout the book, the chapter topics correlate with parenting principles proven in national research.

    Second, it is positive. Amid gloomy and theoretical resources, this book leaves parents empowered and hopeful that even little tweaks to their family rhythms can make a big difference.

    Third, it is practical. Readers get what they want most: more than 100 ideas from other parents they can try today, this week, or this month.

    Fourth, its “guidebook” format is accessible. For busy parents who don’t have time and inclination to read, this format is a welcome resource that they can return to time and time again for fresh ideas and inspiration.

    The explosive growth of the Sticky Faith movement marks the dawning of a new era in ministry with young people. An increasing number of youth leaders, pastors, and parents are embracing Sticky Faith principles and practices as a response to the mass exodus of teenagers and young adults from the church (see stickyfaith.org). But Sticky Faith is not a quick fix solution. Through our intensive work with churches nationwide, the FYI team has developed a proven process to help you lead change in your ministry. Much more than a book, this field guide puts tools in your hands for the next 180 days.
