Episode 75 of The Student Ministry Podcast features a conversation with Dr. Josh Packard, the Executive Director at Springtide Research Institute. He and his team conduct qualitative and quantitative research on the inner and outer lives of young people, ages 13-25. Recently, they released The State of Religion and Young People 2021: Navigating Uncertainty, a compilation of their latest research. Springtide states, “Over 75% of young people identify as religious or spiritual. But they told us they’re not turning to faith communities during stressful moments in life.” Their latest report offers the data, insights, and framework we need to support young people as they face life’s biggest questions.
