"Sticky Faith: The Church and Today's Adolescent"

Dr. Chap Clark delivers a lecture entitled, “Sticky Faith: The Church and Today’s Adolescent.” There is no question that life is changing, and changing rapidly. As a consequence, for lots of reasons, we live in an increasingly adult-centric society that without thinking, relentlessly subjects children and adolescents to the pressures of adult-driven agendas. Like no time in history, today’s youth grow up knowing that the only way to survive is as a tribe apart – and it’s our systems and structure, even in the church, that contributes to this increasing isolation. In this lecture, we’ll discuss the ways that we can connect with our youth and provide the foundational support they need to reflect on their dreams, their relationships and their lives.
