Will Your Kids have Faith after High School?

The Salem News recently posted a story on the upcoming Gordon College lecture “Will Your Kids have Faith after High School?” to their blog: “A Shore Thing.”

Dr. Cheryl Crawford ’77 will give the special lecture on Thursday, October 28, 7-9 p.m. in the Ken Olsen Science Center. Crawford, associate professor of youth ministry at Azusa Pacific University, will present the findings of six years spent researching over a dozen teens from New England as they transitioned from church youth groups to public colleges or universities.

“People often say we’re losing kids from the church,” said Professor Mark Cannister, cochair of the Christian Ministries Department. “But it’s always been difficult for our youth to get connected, so when they graduate from high school the challenge is even greater.”
