"The National Study of Youth and Religion is a research project directed by Christian Smith, Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Notre Dame and Lisa Pearce, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill." Funded by the Lily Endowment, "the project is designed to enhance our understanding of the religious lives of American youth from adolescence into young adulthood, using telephone survey and in-depth interview methods."
Established in 1995, the institute "seeks to revitalize ministry with adolescents by helping the church integrate youth ministry into the total mission of the congregation and by encouraging a theologically rich approach to this ministry."
Dr. Kara Powell, author of Sticky Faith, leads the Fuller Youth Institute "a team of researchers, creatives, church leaders and dreamers who believe in helping churches unleash the passion and potential of young people everywhere."
