Preview the Documentary

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

The 25 minute documentary unpacks the facets of religious disaffiliation, from the latest research, to 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. 

This rich, reflective digital documentary and guidebook, is created in collaboration with Springtide Research Institute.
