Studies show fewer adults under the age of 30 choose to affiliate with a religion. Are they walking away from faith, or towards something else? And what are Houston area religious leaders doing about it?

We talk over the rise of religiously unaffiliated Houstonians with Anthony Pinn, a Professor of Humanities and Religion at Rice University, and Sean Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of the Jung Center.

Then, we discuss what some area religious institutions are doing to try to reach out to younger, unaffiliated Houstonians. We welcome your questions for Rev. Laura Mayo, the senior minister at Covenant Church, Ruth Nasrullah from the Council on American-Islamic Relations Houston office, and Father Italo Dell’Oro from the Catholic Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
