Mercy Multiplied Talks Serious Teen Issues with Global Experts

Like the hurting young girls who first enter Mercy Ministries, teens across the country are dealing with serious life-controlling issues. Did you know that 12 to 17 year olds are the largest consumers of internet porn, 60 percent of high school students have thought about committing suicide, 34 percent of teenage girls get pregnant at least once and it’s estimated that one in every 200 teenage girls cuts themselves regularly?

Kristy and Dave Spring
We’re honored to have student ministry experts, Dave and Kristy Spring, joining us again on the airwaves THIS Sunday. The Springs will once again keep the conversation real and raw and answer all your questions about the challenges faced by students on a daily basis. No topic is off limits. Dave and Kristy have over 18 years of experience working with teens around the globe including the U.S., Mexico, Jamaica, Ireland, England, New Zealand, Australia and Southeast Asia. The Springs are also generously lending Mercy Ministries their worldwide campus ministry expertise as we launch our campaign to get college campuses involved in our efforts to help victims of sex trafficking (Stay-tuned for more on this initiative soon).

Join us for this very important discussion on SuperTalk 99.7 WTN between 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM CST, or listen live from around the country at www.mercymultiplied.com. Whether you are a teen, a parent of a teen or someone who struggled with these issues as a teen, we want to hear what you have to say. Call us at 615-737-9986 with your stories, questions and concerns. Podcasts of all the shows are available here.
