Recent research showed that roughly 70% of children raised in church leave church within one year of going to university. The number one reason given for this mass exodus was intellectual skepticism. Currently, in the UK, an embarrassingly small percentage of churches are doing anything to prepare the next generation for what they will face at school or university.
In 2019, Pastor Graham Phillips established the Reasons to Believe course, designed to equip Christians to be more effective at sharing the gospel with atheists, skeptics and people of other faith backgrounds. So far, two of these courses have run and over 100 people have signed up to each one. Notes and audio from the sessions are sent out each week for you to reflect on.
