Young people are leaving our churches at an alarming rate. We have failed to equip them to be godly men and women while the world has seduced them to become ‘grown up’ through unhealthy rites of passage such as premarital sex, alcohol consumption, movies and other hedonistic activities. If another generation is lost to the moral decay of our world, it will have a dramatic effect on our churches, our nation, our world. Parents can help preserve this generation by lovingly directing their children towards godly rites of passage and ultimate godly adulthood. However, it takes all of us – grandparents, aunts, uncles, and every other adult to engage our young people and invite them to join us in the adventure of following Jesus for a lifetime.
