Students Feel Closer to God After High School, Research Shows

[The Christian Post] 4 Dec 2009--Post-high school years have often been cited as a season when most students struggle in their Christian faith and leave the church. But recent research shows that that might not be the case.Fuller Youth Institute released findings on Tuesday showing that two to three years after finishing high school, students said they were feeling "closer to God."

Over 400 students were asked the open-ended question "Since leaving high school, what’s changed about the way you view God?" Among the 14 different responses given, the top three categories of change were all positive changes.

Feeling closer to God, believing that God is bigger than they once thought, and having a greater understanding that God is with them and for them were the largest categories of responses.
