How to Develop Robust Faith in Young People

Here's a fascinating interview by Chris Yaw on Churchnext with Kenda Creasy Dean, professor of Youth, Church and Culture at Princeton Theological Seminary.

Dean says we often not need look further than parents.

An abundance of research points to an astonishing link between religiously active adults and religiously active children – so the best place to start – is with parents.

Spiritual development is not like soccer -- where the parents' job is to drop the kids off and stand on the sideline.  Rather, the parents need to get in the game, and play along with them!

In this interview, Professor Dean tells us why young people look for less play time and more passion in church, and how we might begin to provide it.
