Promoting Sticky Faith in Young Adults

Research indicates that 40 to 50 percent of youth drift from their faith after high school, for three primary reasons: (1) they have embraced a faith that is primarily about “sin management” rather than transformative grace, (2) they are segregated into professionalized youth programs, and (3) their parents fail to fully engage faith and its practices themselves. In response, the Fuller Youth Institute at Fuller Seminary launched the “Sticky Faith” initiative. The Resources for American Christianity website, which helps Christian leaders, scholars and other interested people better understand the impact, trends and trajectories of Christianity in American society, offers, "Kara Powell on Youth Ministries that Foster a Faith that 'Sticks' beyond High School," a  video of relevant comments by institute director Kara Powell, along with the transcript of an interview of Powell conducted by the Rev. Louis Weeks.
