According to the book You Lost Me by David Kinnaman, among Christians who are 18-25:
- 38% have significantly doubted their faith
- 57% are less active in church than at age 15
- 59% have dropped out of church
Why are these young adults leaving the church? Well, the answer might not be as important as the way we respond to them. They’re real people–not just statistics–and they have a story. If you know someone who’s left the church–reach out and start a conversation. Be open, kind and humble–with listening ears.
