A few years ago Trinity experienced a tremendous shift in Youth Ministry. The way we'd been doing Youth Ministry just wasn't working anymore. So after a period of discernment, Trinity discovered Fuller Seminary's youth ministry model called "Sticky Faith."
What is Sticky Faith? Check out the video below.
The Fuller professors and researchers discovered that there are three critical principles for the life of a church to engage in to help nurture a life long faith in teens. These principles are:
- Preach a grace based gospel, rather than focusing on behaviors
- Involve teens in the whole life of the church, pursue inter-generational not multi-generational ministry
- Empower parents as the most significant faith influence for their child.
Trinity guides every decision made in Youth Ministry with these three principles in mind. We don't have a weekly youth group gathering because we prefer to invite, empower, and involve teens in the whole life of the church.
