This webinar introduces some of the sobering statistics about youth staying, leaving and returning to church in Canada. It asks questions about why these trends are happening and what can be done to inspire our youth to carry on the tradition of serving Jesus Christ through the church and into his world. It is suggested that Canadian society no longer supports the discipleship of young men and women and thus parents and congregations need to be more intentional about raising youth to be agents of renewal in God's kingdom.
