The Leavers: Young Doubters Exit the Church

Nov. 20, 2010 - Drew Dyck, author of Generation Ex-Christian, gives the results of several polls and studies that show that there is a major exodus from Christianity among 18- to 29-year-olds. They give a variety of reasons for their defection, but most of them cite negative experiences with other church people.
The Barna Group estimates that 80 percent of those reared in the church will be "disengaged" by the time they are 29.
Dyck also explains that this generation of doubters is less likely than the young adults of previous times to return to the Church because the prevailing culture is post-Christian. Appeals to rational thinking are no longer persuasive to many of them. Alternative forms of spirituality, like Wicca, appeal to a significant minority of these ex-Christians.

The best response to this serious problem is to find ways of re-establishing good relationships with these young adults. The church has well-developed programs to help people with addictions, but "precious little for Christians struggling with the faith."

Reaching the Post-Christian

June 23, 2009 - A high percentage of the 20-something population have already been turned off by something in Christianity, and are not likely to respond to any invitation to a church event. They can still be reached by building personal relationships with them and involvement in Serving/Social Justice projects, opportunities for artistic expression, and development of a trans-ethnic community.
