A word to those who are joining the Sticky Faith Movement: "Easy to follow" does not mean "easy to implement." Change in any system is often a treacherous adventure. The uniqueness of this Launch Kit is found in the way Kara and Brad practically walk you through the challenges inherent in making your church a Sticky Faith community.

The Sticky Faith Launch Kit is a profoundly practical and deeply robust toolkit for equipping your church. The team at the Fuller Youth Institute has put their research and proven methodology to work here. Theory and research meet the real world in ways that youth workers, church staff, volunteers, and parents will find accessible and practical. Do you want to lead change in your church? The Sticky Faith Launch Kit is for you.

Kara Powell approaches her work as a sacred calling and with a fierce confidence that God can handle whatever troubling data the research might reveal about young people – and about ourselves.

Sticky Faith will change the way you see the role of your church in building authentic faith in the next generation. This is starting a critical conversation with parents and leaders that should reshape the church.

One of the many reasons I'm a huge fan of Sticky Faith is because it's so timely! The Sticky Faith content is helping move youth and family ministry in the direction we all need to head. It not only raises crucial questions about the gospel, the church, and families, but it also provides practical answers and ideas any youth leader can try.

The Fuller Youth Institute has done it again! They’ve taken groundbreaking research and formed it into a practical toolkit for churches to apply in their own contexts. The concepts are important, the ideas are tangible, and your results will be powerful. This Launch Kit is so good that our church will buy it even though we’ve already participated in a yearlong Sticky Faith Cohort!

I couldn't be more thrilled with the Sticky Faith Launch Kit! For years, I've wanted to have an accessible resource to put in the hands of churches trying to implement a more family-based youth ministry. This kit far exceeds my expectations! I can't wait to make it available to the churches we work with.
