Faith for Life
“Confident teens with a desire to passionately pursue Christ.” Does this describe the Gen Z students in your life? The research shows that many youth in our culture fall prey to false worldviews. But there is hope! Get equipped to disciple your kids in a lifelong faith and to navigate their questions and doubts with grace.
Join Summit Ministries on February 8th for an online training for parents, educators, and church leaders. You’ll gain invaluable insights from our speakers who have dedicated their lives to the goal of inspiring young minds. Dr. Jeff Myers, Aaron Buttery, and Sally Clarkson will guide you through this dynamic 3-hour event as you learn to disciple GenZ. Become a more trusted influence who can confidently address young people’s intellectual inquiries and discover the deeper questions within their hearts.
The questions below are designed to help you get the most out of this event. If you are watching with a few people, discuss the questions together. If you are watching alone, reflect and think about the questions. Or gather some friends or co-workers and watch this event as a group.

Session #3: A Place to Belong, Become, and Build (Aaron Buttery)Students need a community to foster their identity, champion their purpose, and welcome their whole person.

It is within vibrant communities that young people are taught core convictions and see them lived out with godly character.
