What every church leader should know about sexting

Yes… it’s important.

Because it’s happening in your church.

And probably not just with teenagers.

First, a definition:  Sexting is using mobile technology to send a suggestive, nude or semi-nude text, picture or video of oneself to someone else.

Why do you need to know about this?

Well… because according to a recent study, about 48% of teens have received a sexually suggestive message.  And about 39% have sent one.

I’m not sure what the stats are for adults, but I bet they’re probably not that much different in your community, at least in some circles.

Here are some helpful hints. (Found at Youthministrymedia.ca)

    Todd, where are you getting those numbers? I don’t see in those references a study that suggests the numbers you have listed here. Do you have a link to the study that you are referring to?
