It is no secret that young people raised in the church often leave when they get out of High School. As this trend has worsened, we are seeing an entire generation becoming disengaged from the church.
Many Christians see this trend and want to become better at presenting ancient truths to a new generation that faces unique challenges and obstacles. But how can we get through to “Generation Z” in our increasingly secular culture?
Listen as our guest Sean McDowell discusses how parents, teachers, and ministry leaders can help the next generation understand and embrace a biblical worldview.

- What makes Generation Z unique
- Why young people often leave the church
- The three front line groups that can address this negative trend
- How parents, ministry leaders, and teachers can form meaningful relationships with young people and reach them with the Gospel
