In Fabric of Faithfulness, Stephen Garber says there are three characteristics of young adults who stay strong in their faith:
- They develop strong convictions based on a biblical worldview that addresses real-world challenges.
- They have caring mentors who demonstrate that it is possible to successfully live out a biblical worldview.
- They are involved in a vibrant community of people who share their values and life experiences and commit to living godly lives.
Without life-on-life influence, young people are cast adrift spiritually. The Passing the Baton Training Course helps you reverse that trend and infuse the next generation with purpose and direction.
David Kinnaman, president of the Barna Research Group, says: "One helpful thing we're learning is that the lower the ratio of students to adults the better the learning environment." In other words, small is the new big. If we want to shape the next generation of leaders, we must do it life-on-life.
