The statistics are grim: Rainer Research estimates that 70 percent of young people leave the church by age 22, and according to the Barna Group that figure increases to 80 percent by age 30. Kara Powell, the executive director of the Fuller Youth Institute, says that one thing churches can do to make a difference is to get kids actively involved in the life of the church before they graduate—and the best way to do this is by getting adults involved in their lives. Teen discipleship is essential to the life of the church and it is not limited to those designated as youth leaders. In fact, youth ministry expert Chap Clark suggests there should be at least five adults investing in the life of each youth group member in some way.

This 16-page resource is designed to help you go deeper as you build relationships with teenagers and help them grow in spiritual maturity.

Only those who are truly "born spiritually of the Spirit," in Christ's death on the cross, a.k.a., the KEY to "knowledge about the secrets of the Kingdom of heaven" have guarantee to grow in his grace, knowledge and sustainable faith (John 3: 1-15; Matt. 13: 11-12)

Your article above said "This 16-page resource is designed to help you go deeper as you build relationships with teenagers and help them grow in spiritual maturity." Where do I find these 16 pages? I can't seem to get full access to these articles. Are we to purchase them, or are they free articles?
