Watch the video from our webinar with Kara Powell, Executive Director of the Fuller Youth Institute and co-author of Sticky Faith and Growing Young.

kara-powellKara Powell is a prominent voice today in helping the greater church understand what causes young people to engage in church and the forces that pull them away. Her longitudinal study of over 500 active youth group “graduates” has become the gold standard for understanding “Sticky Faith.” Kara will talk about the data and insight that change the trajectory of life and faith for millennials from their new research on churches that aren’t aging and shrinking, but are growing young. Like all breakthrough ideas, many of her findings and suggestion are counterintuitive. It’s not what you expect. This is not for those who think they have this figured out.
