Alex McFarland: ‘Our young people are being inundated with lies — untruths that are destroying the souls of people and the core of our nation’
October 10, 2022
GREENSBORO, N.C. — American youth are losing their religion. Since the 1990s, increasingly large numbers of Americans have reported their religious identity as atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular.” Only one in four young adults believe that the Church should be involved in local affairs. Youth are experiencing a rise in mental health issues such as despair, depression and anxiety like never before. The question is — what will the American Church do about it?
In order to combat the decline in religion of America’s youth, Alex McFarland and Alex McFarland Ministries is proud to announce its new Viral Truth Campus Clubs. These clubs are designed to equip Christian youth with the tools needed to go out into their schools and preach the Good News to other teens who may not know the Gospel. Already, hundreds of students nationwide have been coached.
Having been Focus On The Family’s first Director of Teen Apologetics, McFarland is well aware of the shift in the culture regarding youth. McFarland has personally witnessed the decline in religion among America’s youth and is well-equipped to come alongside teens and young adults to help them better understand the realities about God and religion.
“Our young people are being inundated with lies — untruths that are destroying the souls of people and the core of our nation,” McFarland stated. “However, I believe that the Lord wants us to help begin a movement that offers them truth in a way which supports them during the toughest times in their young Christian journey.
“That’s why Alex McFarland Ministries launched Viral Truth Campus Clubs, which is
a way for Christian students to reach out to their peers and fellow students with the Good News of the Gospel. These clubs offer the opportunity for students to discuss the tough topics they are faced with
today in a group setting which will be held with Christian students leading the conversations.”
McFarland explained, “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 socialism and moral relativism. Our Viral Truth Campus Clubs will bring the Gospel to the students, helping them regain their respect for our nation and teaching them what is true and trustworthy.”
