The case of the disgruntled church youth

Every Christian parent fears their children will wander away from the church — and from God.

Alison Hull

It is a fear understood by Rob Parsons, the Chairman and Founder of Care for the Family, and the subject of his latest book, Getting your Kids through Church without them ending up hating God. As he says, ‘I think I understand why many parents have that fear, because the spectre of it has terrorised my own heart. It is that the experience of being brought up in a Christian home and being intimately involved in the life of a local church, with all the pressures that can bring, could damage the seeds of faith in our children’s hearts. Our fear is that the exposure they have to Christianity will cause them to have little love for God or his people’.
