Synopsis: Studies show that 75% of kids will leave the church when they graduate from high school. Of the children who stayed, there were five common factors among them: they ate family dinner most nights together, served together, had a significant spiritual experience in the home, were entrusted with responsibility in the ministry, and had at least one adult in their lives believing the same things that their parents believed. The likelihood of these factors happening in the home is up to the parents.
