(Stats on declining church numbers)
(Stats on internal struggle of local church)
In 1991 there were 39 million unchurched people in America. By 2014 there were over 156 million. (CAN CHECK AND GET NEW NUMBER)
Every single generation alive is on the decline as it relates to church attendance. Young parents raising young children are the least likeliest generation alive to attend church on Sunday morning.
Twenty years ago, two-thirds of unchurched Americans (65%) were open to being invited to church by a friend. Today, that percentage has slipped to less than half (47%).
In the 1990s, 13% of unchurched adults had never experienced regular church attendance. Today, that percentage has increased to nearly 25%.
In the early 1990s, 70%, if they were to visit a church, would be most interested in attending the Sunday service. Today, weekend worship services remain the most common entry experience, but only slightly; now, only 57% of unchurched adults say they would be interested in Sunday worship as their starting point. Today’s unchurched are more likely to say they are simply not sure, reflecting their disinterest in churches generally, or are more likely to say they would prefer attending some activity other than the Sunday service.
When the unchurched were asked to describe what they believe are the positive and negative contributions of Christianity in America, almost half (49%) could not identify a single favorable impact of the Christian community. (Barna Research Group)
