New Louisiana Event from Dr. Alex McFarland Aims to Provide Young Christians with the Tools to Keep the Faith All Throughout Life
GREENSBORO, N.C.—Many parents and youth pastors worry that young people may stray from their faith in Jesus and leave their commitment to church as they get older.
Their worries are not unfounded. There’s data to back it up.
For more than two decades, religion and culture expert, national radio host and author Dr. Alex McFarland has given young people reasons to keep the faith, helping them to cling to Christ throughout life and to strengthen their zeal for the Lord.
McFarland’s upcoming two-day Truth for a New Generation (TNG) conference near Baton Rouge, Louisiana, later this month will help students, parents, youth pastors and community members to lift up this young generation, pray for them and empower them to stand strong in their faith.
“For more than two decades, it’s been the goal of Truth for a New Generation to help Christians, especially young believers, know how to talk about their faith in Christ and share it with others, particularly in a culture where more and more young people are abandoning their beliefs, leaving church behind or even adopting atheist views,” McFarland said. “We pray the upcoming event near Baton Rouge will help this generation realize that God has a plan for their lives, and He wants to see it fulfilled for His glory.”
Faith investigator and best-selling author J. Warner Wallace, who has been a guest speaker at several of McFarland’s Truth for a New Generation events, summarized the facts about young people leaving the faith on his Cold-Case Christianity website:
