Three Reasons Why Kids Ministry is Cancelled Today

by Daniel De Jesus

Research has shown that about half of high school students who grow up in church will likely leave their faith after graduation. It turns out that two of the keys to building lasting faith in students are intergenerational relationships and intergenerational worship experiences. In their study of nearly 500 youth group graduates from around the country, Fuller Youth Institute revealed the following important insight about the power of intergenerational relationships in building sticky faith.

Involvement in all-church worship during high school is more consistently linked with mature faith in both high school and college than any other form of church participation.

Furthermore, by far, the number-one way that churches made students in our survey feel welcomed and valued was when adults in the congregation showed interest in them.
