Longing for something in between. An empirical study on dilemmas Christian multicultural youth encounter in their congregations
MetadataShow full item record
The youth in this study belong to various churches. Some attend typical immigrant churches, others more multicultural churches or various non-immigrant churches. Wherever they find their place, they have to relate to different cultures and different ways of expressing the Christian faith. Sometimes the youth are not ready to comply with the cultural and/or religious expectations they meet in their congregations. In these situations dilemmas arise and it is these which create the backdrop for the main research question of this project: How do Christian youth with integrated plural identities deal with dilemmas they face in the churches they attend and how do these experiences influence how they participate in their congregations?
