How Do We Foster Sustainable Faith in Young Adults?
 ~ A Survey by the Student & College Ministries Committee ~

 
1. What ministries exist at your church for reaching young adults? (Check all that apply)
2. Approximately, how many Middle School students attend your church?
3. Approximately, how many High School students attend your church?
4. Approximately, how many College Students/Young Adults (age 18-25) attend your church?
5. How many people attend your church on average each week?
6. Recent studies show that nearly 75% of Christian young people leave the church after high school. Has your church made any changes in response to this cultural shift? (Check all that apply)
7. Studies also indicate that one of the key reasons young people leave the church is "intellectual skepticism" - they head into college with unresolved doubts and unanswered questions. Ministry leaders and parents are faced with the challenge of staying informed on numerous complex issues, so they can pro-actively engage students in the very areas of their doubts and questions.
What type of training opportunities would best support your leaders and parents? (Check up to 5, that would best serve your church)
8. Does your church set aside funds as part of the annual staff development budget, for the professional development of youth leaders and/or college/young adult ministry leaders? Does it set aside funds for training and supporting the parents of young adults? (Check all that apply)
9. What new resources would you like to see on our web sites?
(Select up to 5)
10. Further studies show that more than half of college professors view Christianity with hostility and take opportunities in the classroom to express this viewpoint. Does your church have a "College Transition" program in place for students, parents and/or ministry leaders? (Check all that apply)
