Podcast with Kara Powell

Dr. Kara E. Powell is the Executive Director of the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) and a faculty member at Fuller Theological Seminary. Kara currently volunteers in student ministries at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena. She is the author or co-author of a number of books and curriculum guides, including Sticky Faith, Essential Leadership (2010), Deep Justice Journeys (2009), Deep Justice in a Broken World (2008), Deep Ministry in a Shallow World (2006), Good Sex Youth Ministry Curriculum (2001, rev 2009), Help! I’m a Woman in Youth Ministry (2004), and Mirror, Mirror (2003).  Kara speaks across the country at events for youth workers, parents, and students.

Today on the podcast we focus on her latest book Sticky Faith. The Fuller Youth Institute has been studying what are the leading factors that foster a faith that sticks with students after high school.

Sticky Faith is a great book and I highly recommend it. There are two editions. One is for parents (blue cover) and one for youth workers (white cover). This book is based on the research FYI did but it is more about the nuts and bolts of how to implement this in your family and church.
