Alex McFarland: ‘Today’s teens are more connected than ever before, which makes them more aware of what is going on in the world around them’
November 7, 2022
GREENSBORO, N.C. — All eyes are watching the upcoming 2022 midterm elections, with voters across the country preparing to make their voices heard on a variety of important topics such as abortion, inflation, school boards, and other key ideologies. Despite being ineligible to vote, many teens under the age of 18 are incredibly invested in the upcoming election. A recent study found that children and teens demonstrated interest in and knowledge about the election and candidates, but many had gaps in their knowledge.
Renowned speaker, author, and apologist Alex McFarland has worked with youth for decades and is more aware than ever before of their desire to be politically active.
“As I cross the country and speak to thousands of kids, I’ve noticed the eagerness to get informed and involved,” McFarland stated. “Today’s teens are more connected than ever before, which makes them more aware of what is going on in the world around them. Christian youth, in particular, are ready to go out into the world and make a difference, but they don’t really know how.
“This is why Alex McFarland Ministries is proud to announce its new Viral Truth Campus Clubs, which are unique gatherings designed to equip Christian youth with the tools they might need to go out into their schools and share the Good News to other teens who may not know the Gospel. Alex McFarland Ministries will come alongside middle school, high school, and college student leaders to provide mentorship and coaching to equip teens to reach their friends with the Gospel message and with truth to combat the ‘woke’ agendas of human secularism, socialism and moral relativism.”
Rather than indoctrinate children with radical, anti-American ideologies, Viral Truth Campus Clubs help to inform and empower youth with the tools necessary to be informed adults. With a focus on biblical truth, McFarland and the rest of the team work to prepare Christian youth to go out into their communities and share the Gospel with their peers.
“Our Viral Truth Campus Clubs offer the opportunity for Christian students to facilitate discussions about tough topics they are faced with today in a group setting with others their age who might need to hear the truth of the Gospel,” McFarland stated. “The goal is to understand what God’s Word has to say about all aspects of our world and issues are discussed from a biblical perspective.”
