Adolescent Spirituality: Age of Conversion and Factors of Development

From: Volume X, Issue 3: Spring 1990 Pages 17-30


Two descriptive research studies (N=257 and N=229), combined with a review of the literature, address two dimensions of adolescent spirituality: (1) age of conversion (e.g., At what age do most people become Christians" To what extent do males and females differ?) and (2) factors of development (e.g., What are the major influencing factors for spiritual growth in adolescents? To what extent do adolescents differ in spiritual growth when raised in homes where Christian influence is strong, medium, little, or nonexistent?) Implications for parents of youth and youth ministry programs are suggested.
