In 2012, the Barna Group found that almost 60 percent of Christian young people ages 15 to 29 have distanced themselves from active involvement in traditional church fellowship.
In a recent article, the Barna Group asked the following questions:
- Why, even among those who grew up in church, have nearly six in ten dropped out at some point?
- Why have more than half been absent from church for the past six months?
- Why do three in ten Millennials say church is not at all important while an additional four in ten feel ambivalent, saying church is either somewhat important or somewhat not important?
Millennials are the generation with a “Yes We Can!” attitude. Yes, we can change the established systems. They have also been called many things from lazy to soft on sin.
