Igniting Faith

What makes young people excited about faith?

The emerging generation of young adults love to serve and care for others around them. Their faith becomes tangible as they work for social justice.

According to the Hemorrhaging Faith report, seven out of 10 committed Christian young adults said their faith came alive because they participated in a mission trip. When young people take what they learn in Christian community and apply it to mission, they become partners with God in influencing the world.

Take a look at Joanne’s story. She explored God’s call to mission at the Urbana 12 Student Missions Conference and responded to his invitation to work with First Nations people in Central Manitoba.

“I decided I wanted to give the first fruits of my time and work after university to God by doing full-time missionary work,” she says.

Take a look at Aidan’s story. When he sought a concrete experience of God after high school, he packed up his photographic equipment and headed to Africa to capture the work of a Christian non-profit organization on film.

“Coming out of high school, I was questioning everything,” he says. “This experience affirmed my faith and was something I needed.”
