Beyond Disaffiliation is a rich, reflective digital documentary and guidebook, created in collaboration with Springtide Research Institute for Religion and Young People. 

Beyond Disaffiliation Sneak Peek from Saint Mary's Press on Vimeo.

This 25 minute documentary is a front seat to national research presentations, unpacking the facets of religious disaffiliation, woven within the stories of actual young people’s lived experiences. Well-respected researchers like sociologist Dr. Josh Packard, theologian Dr. Elizabeth Drescher, and pastoral minister Dr. Bob McCarty will help you make sense of what is happening, but more important perhaps is that they are helping to point you toward hope in the midst of your concern. 

Combined with documentary is a comprehensive guidebook! This is an affordable way for your group to forge new ways of accompanying young people.

You and your group will be guided through a planning process, empowered to form a response in your community and create new paths to accompany young people in their religious longings and desire for belonging.
