Feedback form is now closed.
Half of youth ditch their faith upon graduating from youth ministry. What's the difference for those who stay connected? How is it different in multi- or specific-ethnic ministry contexts? This workshop looks at research by the Fuller Youth Institute with insights from Latino, African American, and Asian American leaders. We will unearth the toxic myths students believe, making them shelve their faith, and will work on strategies to make a difference in students' lives.
