Going, Going, Gone explores the research conducted by Jeff Schadt with 1,500 Christian teens. It examines what these students revealed in focus groups about what was really impacting their faith in their homes, lives and church community. Allow Jeff to help you understand the reasons they say "this is my parents faith, not mine" and what motivates them to give the impression their faith is strong when they are actually thinking about leaving it as soon as they leave home.


Look beyond what we hear on the radio and in the church to the real reasons 70% of Christian kids leave the faith. Take an insightful look inside the perspective of our youth to discover what they’re seeking and how to reach them where they are today. If we are to influence their future, we need to decode our adolescents' perspective in order to have meaningful interaction around these vital topics.
