Focus on the Family Goes After Teens

From the Colorado Springs Gazette: “Studies have shown at least 50 percent — and possibly as much as 85 percent — of kids involved in church groups will abandon their faith during their first year in college. In an attempt to reverse those numbers, Focus on the Family on Saturday hosted ‘The Big Dig,’ a conference aimed at teens and youth leaders. The goal was not just to celebrate participants’ Christian faith but also to give them the tools to defend their beliefs against questions they will face.”
