Strong Enough to Last: Building Spiritual Depth Into Our Kids
by David Boyd
The Barna group recently released shocking statistics: Less than half of born-again teenagers
(44 percent) say they are absolutely committed to the Christian faith. Only one in every three
teens (33 percent) say they are likely to continue to participate in church life once they are
living on their own. These alarming numbers bring all kinds of questions to mind:
- What can the church do to develop spiritually strong kids?
- How can Kids Ministry Leaders work with parents to keep kids in church ?
- What tools will help us provide adequate spiritual training?
With over thirty years of kids ministry experience, David Boyd is a reliable source for anwers
to questions like these. Based on eight major goals, he provides insight and information on how
to help kids become believers who are strong enough to last the most difficult challenges of
