The Sticky Faith Initiative

The Sticky Faith Initiative

“As we have examined other research, our conclusions show that 40-50% of kids who are connected to a youth group when they graduate will stick to their faith in college.”

Sticky Faith. Practical ideas to nurture long-term faith in teenagers

What is the Sticky Faith Initiative?

It is a church-wide effort to see that we are developing a culture where our kids are graduating from High School without graduating from God. The work of the Sticky Faith initiative has elements that crop up throughout our body in big and small ways, but it especially zeros in on creating a bridge for students between their Senior year and first year-post High School. The heart of the transition is to help students discover healthy spiritual community as they leave the High School Ministry. For many, this will have to be found in a place away from NMC as they will spend the majority of their college age years at a distance from NMC.

Our Process: Coach… Commission… Care.

Coach (September-April Senior year): Meeting with Seniors in large group, small group, and individual settings to prepare and equip for the change.

Commission (May-July Senior year): Honor the Seniors, but also launch them into the next phase of life.

Care (August-May post-High School year): Follow up with graduates and offer support, encouragement, and prayer as they walk through the transition.
