Young Adults Leaving the Church

Posted in Christ and Culture by sosipater on August 9, 2007

Seven in 10 Protestants ages 18 to 30 — both evangelical and mainline — who went to church regularly in high school said they quit attending by age 23, according to the survey by LifeWay Research. And 34% of those said they had not returned, even sporadically, by age 30. That means about one in four Protestant young people have left the church.

 This is a very interesting article on young adults leaving evangelical churches.  Not a new topic, but one we need to continue to think about.  The article can be found at USA Today or here.

    This was our topic of discussion last week in my 8th-10th grade SS class. We had a good discussion I think about it. I hope it got most of them thinking about why these numbers are where they are and what we need to be doing to reverse this trend.
