Why youth leave the church – and what can be done (with Kara Powell)
American youth who grew up in Christian families are leaving the church at a massive pace. Curtis talks with Kara Powell, executive director of The Fuller Youth Institute, about the complex reasons for this trend – and what can be done. They discuss why any understanding of the causes – and therefore the necessary response – must include parents and churches doing the hard work of self-examination and self-transformation.
