Are Christian teens leaving the church because of unfulfilling youth groups? | Christian News on Christian Today.

Recent polls show Christian teenagers are turning away from the church – and some believe unfulfilling youth groups and parents’ over-dependence on them may have something to do with it.

According to a survey sponsored by the US-based National Center for Family-Integrated Churches (NCFIC), 55% of American Christians are concerned that modern youth ministry is shallow and too entertainment focused.

Over a third (37%) even agreed that youth group programmes are not actually biblical.
