to live faith OUTLOUD
In 2019, Jamie Davis had the opportunity to work with an organization that goes into public schools to speak to young people about the issues and obstacles they face. The aim of this organization is to challenge students to make choices today that would put them in a prime position to reach their goals and dreams tomorrow.
Within the sessions, we established that media could quite often be a negative influence on our lives. After this, we would ask the students who their positive influences were. They’d typically answer with, Mom, Dad, Coaches, Teachers, etc. The next question was “Is there maybe a faith-based organization you are part of?”, With little or no response.
Every now and then, a student would answer “Church! Oh yeah! My pastor or youth leader”. After witnessing this many times, Jamie came to a stunning conclusion. Either the students of this generation are unchurched and not raised with God at the center like he was as a kid OR there are Christian students sitting at those desks that are too ashamed to admit it. With Jamie being unsure of which is worse. THE OUTLOUD PROJECT was born.
