Youth, Faith and Adults

Like youth, adults “need to be able to articulate the mystery of faith as they understand it,” says Kenda Creasy Dean, professor of youth, church and culture at Princeton Theological Seminary, because “teenagers look to adults in their lives to live out, and talk about, the values we say we have.” But parents are ill-prepared to discuss life in terms of God’s actions; hence, so are their children. Dean explores the systemic issues facing youth ministry in an interview conducted by Tracy Schier and offers suggestions on how to improve the dynamic. Read the interview, "Kenda Creasy Dean on Young People’s Faith and Youth Ministry," By Tracy Schier at Resources for American Christianity.
