# 1 Sign Your Kids May Leave Their Faith

You’ve probably heard the statistics that 70% of Christian raised young adults leave their faith after High School. Well after 25 years of student ministry, I can tell you that it is getting worse, and not better.

It doesn’t seem to matter what Evangelical denomination you are a part of, whether your church is large or small, whether you take your kids to church every Sunday morning and Wednesday night, whether you pray with them at the dinner table and before bed. The chance of your child leaving their faith is looming in the not too distant future.

Natasha Crane is a well know national Christian apologetic speaker. She wrote an article years ago about the number one sign that your child might be borrowing your faith, and not developing their own faith. Though there are many signs that parents and others can see, we agree with Natasha that this one is a big one.

Wondering what it could be? Well click here to find out.

Ken Leaman has a passion for students, and for over 25 years has been volunteering within churches, leading and mentoring students.  These churches are:

Ken is a Director of Enterprise Data Management at IHS Markit, which is a multi-Billion dollar information company. Ken has also served on the board of another non-profit called DFW HDI, which is a membership organization of IT support professionals.  

Ken, and his wife Karen, have been married for 26 years, and have a 25 year old son.  They live in McKinney, TX, just North of Dallas.

As Ken and Karen repeatedly witnessed many Christian students who were active within the Church walk away from their faith shortly after graduating high school, they grew frustrated.  Studies show that about 70% of young adults leave their faith after graduation, which is a huge issue since they are the future of the Church.  After much prayer and searching God's direction for many years, the Leaman's felt His calling to start a ministry to address this problem.  In 2014, they gathered like minded Christian professionals to help begin Young Adults of Worth Ministries.  We believe that this ministry is from God, and it will be blessed by Him for His glory alone.
