Is it inevitable that my teen will walk away from the faith once they hit college? Glenn Stanton, director of Global Family Formation Studies at Focus on the Family, says no way. He points out that organizations like Cru and the Navigators continue to thrive on the college campus, and thousands of students are growing in their faith despite sitting under the teaching of secular professors. Stanton reminds parents of the incredible influence they have in their young adult's life, and he tells how modeling a sincere and growing faith can have a tremendous effect on their son or daughter's own faith.

It's been implied that Christianity is on the decline. But is it really? Researcher Glenn Stanton doesn't think so. According to studies, Christianity is far from disappearing—and is even on the rise. Stanton shares that while more liberal mainline churches are clearly on the decline, non-denominational churches holding to the tenants of Scripture are thriving and growing, not just in America, but all over the world. Stanton reminds listeners that the Holy Spirit is on the move and always will be.
