frequently asked questions

How old do you have to be to attend a Silver Ring Thing event?

The Silver Ring Thing Live Event is designed to reach high school and middle school students, as these are the years during which they are forced to make decisions about their sexuality.  Ideally, we are targeting teenagers, but college students and young adults are also encouraged to attend, as many find the program content both relevant and engaging to their age group.

Parents are strongly encouraged to attend as they are the leading influence in their children's sexual decision-making.  A Parent's Session is held simultaneous to the start of each Live Event to inform parents of the sexual nature of today's youth culture and how they can effectively support and encourage their children in an abstinence decision.

Can parents attend a SRT Live Event?

ABSOLUTELY!!  Parents are strongly encouraged to attend as they are the leading influence in their children's sexual decision-making.  A Parent's Session is held simultaneous to the start of each Live Event to inform parents of the sexual nature of today's youth culture and how they can effectively support and encourage their children in an abstinence decision.

What about students who are already sexually active?

All of us have messed up or made mistakes in one way or another.  At a SRT Live Event, we address this question in the Second Chances message which speaks directly to the issues and problems that sexually active students have encountered. We recognize the fact that many students who attend the SRT are, or have been, sexually active and they need to know it is possible to start over. We speak plainly on the forgiveness and love Jesus Christ offers to change your future.  The answer is YES YOU CAN START OVER and, in fact, for this reason many students attend our program.

What happens after you make a commitment and put on a ring?
How do you deal with temptation?

Once a person puts on the ring, the second phase of the Silver Ring Thing begins. It is impossible for a person not to be tempted, and we want to be available whenever needed. The silver ring and the abstinence vow are a critical first step. Our ongoing support is a 12-step follow-up program including e-mail follow-up, staff/travel team/internship training, an accountability partner, Bare Essentials Program, devotionals, etc.

How do you talk about sex without becoming graphic?

At a SRT Live Event, we are careful not to speak in "graphic" terms for three reasons, (a) the age differences in the room, (b) this is basically the parent's role, (c) this kind of information is better explained one-on-one and not in a group setting. We focus instead on the emotional, mental, relational, and spiritual results of engaging in pre-marital sex and the blessings of waiting until marriage.
