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.
