Parents are the most important resource persons in preparing young people for adulthood but they often have difficulties communicating about sex. These skills should greatly foster young people to develop individual values and make healthy decisions. The study employed a descriptive study design, 400 young people (15-24 years old) were selected randomly from six (6) different churches. Data was gathered with a questionnaire with reliability coefficient 0.73 and analyzed using SPSS software (version 21). Results showed a high level (91.8 %) of sex education knowledge, more than half (55 %) were between 15 to 19 years, 52 % were females and 75 % of respondents parents were educated at the tertiary level. Only 73 (18 %) of the respondents were educated about sex at home often and 99 (24.8 %) never did. It can thus be concluded that the prevalence of sexuality communication between young people and their parents in Christian homes is low. Programs that would help parents positively develop healthy communication skills should be developed to reduce the burden of negative sexual outcomes among young people.
