Research shows that most Christian youth question their faith, but we rarely talk about it, so teenagers are left to navigate this doubt on their own. In this seminar we’ll consider practical ways to journey alongside youth who doubt. Through the lens of both theology and research, we’ll explore various kinds of adolescent doubt, and we’ll learn how to engage their uncertainties and questions as a “dangerous grace” that can lead to a more robust faith if youth are guided well.

The Throne of Grace

Growing up my childhood was very dysfunctional. I didn’t know just how dysfunctional until I became an adult. As a teenager I found myself completely lost, heading in a destructive direction. This is why I love that the Biblical word for lost doesn’t mean dammed or doomed, rather it means misplaced; not in the place…
