Raising Children in the Faith

Why do young adults drop out of church life when they graduate from high school? In this interview, conducted by Quentin Schultze for Calvin College’s Inner Compass TV program, Mark DeVries, the associate pastor for youth and families at the First Presbyterian Church, Nashville, argues that churches too often market religion the way secular institutions market material goods. The result is that youth don’t learn how to engage religion in the first place, or drop away from church when the goods offered are not up to their secular-based standards. What they need is engaged experience in living out faith with a group of adults experienced in living the faith, says DeVries. Listen to an interview clip on the Calvin website.
