I recently watched a very interesting film – Divided. It is concerned with the number of youth leaving the evangelical church “in droves”. Many people think that youth tend to lose their faith during independent college years after having left a “guarded” environment at home. But the statistics have suprisingly shown that most youth leave the church in only middle and high school. They think that the main reason for this is of parents – especially fathers – taking less and less responsibility for the training of their children and handing it over to something called “Sunday school”. The film talks about how the age segregated mindset of Youth/Student ministries is really not biblical. I should probably stop writing and let you watch the preview! It is a thought provoking and very controversial film and is very worth seeing.
If you have more questions, the film’s website is very informational.
