|Title:||New Perspectives on Faith Formation in Adolescence|
|Keywords:||perspectives, church, adolescence, faith, formation, youth, beliefs|
|Abstract:||<p> Churches have often struggled to nurture mature and lasting faith among their young people. This is generally due to a lack of understanding about how beliefs form in adolescents and therefore the ability to shape ministry accordingly. This thesis proposes that adolescents form and mature their beliefs by interpreting significant life experiences. This thesis also offers suggestions for the practice for ministry based upon this understanding of belief formation. These suggestions are intended for church-based youth ministries and draw in part upon practices observed in summer camp ministries.</p>|
