"We're Losing Altitude"

In a recent study, LifeWay Research and Fuller Youth Institute estimated that over half of high school graduates will leave the church and become disengaged in their faith. This is alarming because many emerging adults are making big decisions that affect more than just their own lives—and they are making those decisions without faith in God. You may have a child who has rejected Christianity, or you may simply have a desire to help build an unshakable foundation for your child. 

Whatever the case, Christian parents need to be armed and ready to wage war for the hearts and souls of their adult children. We are knee-deep in a culture war for our children’s faith and for the future fate of Christianity in America. Satan never stops scheming and spreading lies. He doesn’t want you standing firm in the faith, nor does he want you leading your family. 

He uses the guilt and regret many parents carry to advance his agenda. It’s clearly going to take a lot of prayer and hard work to equip parents to rise up and use their influence and faith to change the direction of their homes. But it’s worth it. If you’re desperate to learn about your millennial and you want to find a better and more powerful way to communicate with him or her, then we welcome this opportunity to help reinforce your responsibility to have a strong relationship with your adult child. Your child might be an adult, but that doesn’t mean you’re not to play a role in his or her life. 

We want to empower you to do that, so we’ve sought some of the most respected Christian minds (Lee Strobel, Ed Stetzer, David Kinnaman, Sean McDowell) to help you understand the worldview of typical millennials and, hopefully, to bridge the gaps that exist between you and your adult child. It is our prayer that this plan will deepen your faith and equip you with the courage you need to become the parent your children (young or old) need you to be.
