juliea5 Stars Out Of 5if you work with teens, this book is a must-have!October 9, 2011julieaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Need "practical ideas to nurture long-term faith in teenagers" in your ministry? Or maybe in your own teens? Sticky Faith - Youth Worker Edition is THE book!
Based on a 6-year longitudinal study of over 500 youth group teens as they transitioned to college, Sticky Faith presents a perfect blend of research, teen responses, real life ministry experiences, and practical suggestions.
The research results offer invaluable insight into the minds and hearts of teens as they transition their faith from high school youth groups to college campuses, and beyond. This information alone inspired me toward new youth programming ideas, thus the research findings could almost be a stand-alone book. What an added bonus to be offered scores of tips and programs ideas from churches in a cohort group that have already reprogrammed their youth ministries according to the research. Excerpts from teen survey responses were the icing on the cake, making this not just an important, but also enjoyable read.
I grabbed this book in every free moment I could find, and finished it in just a few days. I cannot wait until others in our church ministry have read Sticky Faith so we can work toward a more lasting faith in the teens in our community. I expect to hear great things from churches who make Sticky Faith a part of their youth ministries!
I received this book free from Zondervan for the purpose of providing my honest review. I was not required to give a positive review.
