Has anyone noticed that the way our Baptist churches are doing youth ministry is not working? What I mean by "not working" is that we are loosing our young people at an alarming rate; maybe not alarming because no one seems to be alarmed, but you get the idea. Depending on the research group we are loosing 70 to 85% of our students by the end of their freshman year of college. Don't believe me? Just look around your church on Sunday morning and tell me where the 19 to 25 years olds are. If a hospital was loosing such a large percentage of patients I imagine that hospital would re-evaluate its methods or close. My question for people on this forum is: What are we doing wrong?
