Joel Singleton graduated from Harding University in 2005 with a degree in Bible and Religion. After college he and his wife Alison moved to St. Petersburg, FL where he has served as the Youth and Family Minister at the Northwest Church of Christ for the past seven years. While working with the Church, Alison completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Through their work with children, teens and families they realized the future of the church is in jeopardy. The key to the growth of Christianity depends on families becoming more intentional in passing down their faith. As a result, Joel authored the Imparting Faith Blueprint and started a non-profit dedicated to providing families and churches with inexpensive resources to pass down faith.
With more than 60 percent of Church-attending youth rejecting faith after high school it is clear that something has to change. Families realize more than ever that they need more than a few ideas to succeed in imparting faith to this generation. They need a plan. It is with this in mind that we have written a simple "what do I do, and how do I do it" plan for families to impart faith.
