Incredible Andy Stanley Quote On What To Do If You Ever Want Your Kids To Abandon Church When They’re Older

Andy Stanley and Craig Groeschel at Catalyst

“If you want your kids to abandon church when they are older, force them to attend a church you secretly wish you could abandon now!”

All I can say is wow. wow. wow.

I know there are many Christians who believe that the way to raise kids are to force them to go to Church every week, which usually just means they’ll bail at the earliest opportunity in life to stop going.  And, worst of all, that horrible experience of Church will remain with them.  That’s why I love this quote.  But more than anything this quote is a massive charge to pastors saying, “you should create the kind of churches that families (especially children) would want to attend, and can’t wait to attend each week.”
