Ross Reynolds talks with James Wellman, chair of the comparative religion program at the University of Washington, about why young people are drawn to evangelical institutions like Mars Hill Church and are leaving mainline denominations behind.

Wellman will be speaking at the Christ and Cascadia conference this month, an academic gathering addressing Christian renewal in the region.
