Overview

Have Andy Griffith, Facebook, and the American Dream neutered the Gospel? Do you sense a church with Hollow Faith? Are you prepared to look in the mirror and examine your ministry?

Inside you will find Youth Worker Training on how to face the following underlying conditions that are plaguing the North American Christian Church.

  • Moralism
  • Therapeutic Religion
  • Modern Deism
  • Self-Absorption (meism)
  • Consumerism
  • Pluralism


Inside you will also find Curriculum to address these issues in your youth ministry and a Parents Guide. The following lessons seek to provide teachers with engaging and solid theological lessons to address the conditions above:
  • What's Wrong with Being Nice?
  • Getting (un)Comfortable with God
  • The Inescapable God
  • Jesus Loves Me This I Know... But What About Everyone Else?
  • Three Little Birds and The Gospel of Enough
  • Being Courageously Christian in a Pluralistic World


After reading Hollow Faith, you will want to pass it along to your ministry volunteers and pastor.

"Hollow Faith will add fuel to the passionate desire that a growing tribe of youth workers have toward embracing a more theologically robust and biblical focused ministry with young people in the North American Christian Church." Mike King, President of Youthfront

Stephen Ingram is the "Steve Jobs of the Youth Ministry world." I'm hard pressed to recall anyone with the inventiveness and informed creativity of this young man. His laboratory has been his own ministry, where the principles of this book were formed, week-in and week-out in the rough-and-tumble reality of dancing with the alligators of church work, where simple answers never work." Mark DeVries, President of Youth Ministry Architects
