Mburu, John Wachori, "A Project on Why Many High School and College Students Fail to Attend Church Services" (2022). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 3594.
The purpose of this research project is to establish why many of the high school and college students within the Light of Life Restoration Church in Kenya choose not to attend church services. Even after childhood training and church attendance since they were young, many students drop out of church. They get themselves involved in other activities and friends who eventually derail them to other attractions. This alarming trend has brought about the derailment from the Christian moral principles and values which have been the guiding principle of the nation. The derailment has caused lawlessness, unruliness, and all kinds of evils within the society. If pastoral counseling could be implemented in schools and colleges, the increased rise in church dropouts that has been causing other ills within the community would be reduced.
