Six Reasons Young Christians Leave Church
Many parents and church leaders wonder how to most effectively cultivate durable faith in the lives of young people. A five-year project headed by Barna Group president David Kinnaman explores the opportunities and challenges of faith development among teens and young adults within a rapidly shifting culture. The findings of the research are included in a new book by Kinnaman titled You Lost Me: Why Young Christians are Leaving Church and Rethinking Church.

The research project was comprised of eight national studies, including interviews with teenagers, young adults, parents, youth pastors, and senior pastors. The study of young adults focused on those who were regular churchgoers Christian church during their teen years and explored their reasons for disconnection from church life after age 15.

No single reason dominated the break-up between church and young adults. Instead, a variety of ...

Sometimes it's bad press.

Some of our most recent and most satisfied members were initially warned to not visit our church (perhaps because we were too "conservative", "legalistic", "old-fashioned", etc.). Thankfully, just out of curiosity to see for themselves what was so "wrong" with our church, they visited us anyway, and ended up learning that we were actually one of the more Biblical and faithful churches in the area.

Many of our young people may be either not finding good churches or are being deliberately steered away from them by bad leaders in their lives.

As I read the article, I immediately thought of the influence of the public school on the thinking of the young people's viewpoint. The moral relativism, that there are no absolutes, evolution, etc. has helped contribute to the answers we see in the survey. Only one thing to change their minds, they must be born again and grow in the grace an knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ya just don't get it do you? Ya can't even see how contradictory your statement is, which can only mean one thing. That ya pay lip service to something you don't understand and certainly don't believe. Which is why YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

I will say it again the Roman Catholic Church is a false church, an Anti-Christ, called in the Scriptures the Whore who has the blood of countless millions of Gods true saints on her hands. She has NO GOSPEL, and her false teachings ensnare and send billions to their graves unsaved sinners!

If God has his elect in that body, they will be saved by the efforts of Protestants who know the power of the Gospel and who out of love will share that Gospel with unsaved Romanists. The saved, having tasted the Gospel's savor of life unto life cannot go back to a body whose 'gospel' is a savor of death unto death. With new spiritual life comes an instinct and also the voice of the Holy Spirit which guards the new born against all that would oppose Christ.

Ya're a help meet to the evil one if ya encourage people to stay in so called 'churches' where God is not!

This is my last to ya, so good bye StevO.

(I guess thats another lie in the OB 1 category)

I contend that Saints(like in the RCC) dont have to understand those(dont forget Sola Scriptura) perfectly to be the Elect. God loves them, they are given faith and they are Justified whether they know the process or not. They are given Faith to trust in Christ knowing he is the Son of God, fully God and able to perform this as God. Its not whether you know God, its whether God knows and Loves you...so..

Once again I will caution you about slandering Gods Elect, as he is very jealous over his Precious Saints.

How can you then say you're Born Again? And how come there is no evidence of the fruit of conversion, eh StevO? Which is why for your benefit it is written liars are headed for the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone ; which is the second death.

Don't get your assurance from your false church StevO, but get it from the Bible. Oh, but wait, you can't accept it's teachings because you're not a child of God, which is why YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

You don't have the Holy Spirit's help in understanding it. Ya think you're clever enough to figure it out even though ya have no spiritual life. Y'all continue in your darkness and perish. Repent now before it's too late!

The spiritually dead cant save themselves, I cant save you, ONLY God can give you that Spirit.
Ive learned quite a bit about this trap that has ensnares people in your Church. Like Catholic idolatry or Presbyterian greed, it ensnares you and refuses to let you go: hate upon hate for the Elect, lie upon lie feigned Love, pride upon pride for error. However, I will keep preaching the Gospel. I will use what I learned here, and perhaps my preaching will be used to save some Baptists from following in your error

There will be Presbyterians, Orthodox, Methodists, Chaldean, Copts, Baptists(those that avoided your trap) with Saints from other Churches all over the World.
