Church Communication and Kenyan Church-Going Youths’ Safe Sex Attitudes and Behavior

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Studies in sub-Saharan Africa find that Pentecostal/Evangelical (P/E) church members engage in less risky behavior than mainline church adherents. Doctrinal messages about sex are fairly consistent across different Christian denominations, so reasons for these differences are not yet clear. Building on Garner’s typology of church characteristics related to sexual behavior, we employed focus group discussions with youth and interviews with youth pastors to investigate differences between denominations regarding: youths’ individual-level sex-related beliefs and behavior; church teaching on sex; method of indoctrination about the topic of sex; subjective religious experience; exclusion (sense of separation from the larger society in terms of sexual values); and socialization. Preliminary findings indicate no different in what denominations teach about sex, but multiple differences in how they do so.
