Note: Dr. Kara Powell spoke at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress to introduce this ecumenical resource published by Zondervan. If you plan to use this excellent series in a Catholic parish, note that there are a few subtle cases where language more familiar to Protestants is used (e.g. reference to a "youth pastor"). Overall, we think this tool will serve parent groups of any denomination well!
How do you instill a solid foundation of faith in your kids that will stick with them long after they leave home? Sticky Faith Parent Curriculum, a video-based study, gives parents practical, tested ideas that launch kids of all ages into a lifelong journey of faith and service.
Most parents would give anything to anchor their children with a vibrant faith that "sticks" and continues to mature into adulthood. Yet, despite this deep desire, research indicates that approximately 40-50% of high school seniors drift from their faith after graduation. The Sticky Faith Parent Curriculum is a video-based study that came from Kara Powell's desire to see her own kids emerge from adolescence with their faith intact. Through personal, real-world experiences of research and sharing, the Sticky Faith Parent Curriculum enables parents to instill a deep and lasting faith in their adolescents. This video curriculum presents powerful strategies and practical ideas to help parents encourage their children's spiritual growth, enabling them to develop a faith that sticks.
