PUBLIC LECTURE: Why your youth don’t go to church.

LectureSam_Poster_FAll are welcome!

Crandall University invites the broader community to attend its new Public Lecture Series. The first lecture will feature Sociology professor Dr. Sam Reimer, on Thursday, January 21 at 7pm at Crandall University. He will address the relevant topic of Why youth aren’t going to church: the top 5 reasons” showing how societal changes drive the rapidly declining religious participation of youth. An expert panel will respond to the lecture, followed by a discussion and question period.  Dr. Reimer’s insights challenge conventional wisdom on why youth leave church and how to retain them.

Sam Reimer (Ph.D., University of Notre Dame) is Professor of Sociology at Crandall University, and the author of two books, A Culture of Faith: Evangelical Congregations in Canada (McGill-Queen’s, 2015) and Evangelicals and the Continental Divide (McGill-Queen’s, 2003).  Professor Reimer has also published many academic articles on religion in Canada and the U.S.

A second lecture will be held on March 17 at 7pm, where Dr. John Stackhouse will engage the audience in the subject of women in roles of leadership.  John Stackhouse (Ph.D., University of Chicago) is the Samuel J. Mikolaski Professor of Religious Studies at Crandall University. His publications range over theology, history, ethics, sociology, philosophy, and comparative religion, and his latest books are Need to Know: Vocation as the Heart of Christian Epistemology (Oxford, 2014) and Partners in Christ: A Conservative Case for Egalitarianism (InterVarsity, 2015).

Both lectures will be held at Crandall University in Stultz Hall in room SH117. Refreshments will follow both events. For more information, please contact Jenna Cann at jenna.cann@crandallu.ca.
