Millennials Leaving Baptist, Going Reformed - Why Reformed Churches Grew
Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Churches are saying 50% of the youth have left or are leaving their churches. Now a new study on millennials traces the denominational journeys of the 20-40 year old crowd — the denominations gaining and losing millennials. The biggest losers are Methodists, Catholics, Liberal Presbyterians, and Fundamentalist Baptists, losing anywhere from 38-52% of the young people who attended their churches as children. The greatest denominational gainers are atheists and agnostics. But, the Reformed Presbyterians and Reformed Baptists increased their millennial attendance by 200%, and the Anglicans have increased their millennial interest by 63%. Non-denominational churches increased millennial attendance by 21%. The study conducted by Generations.org surveyed 10,000 millennials, and found that churches most likely to disciple their members and hold them accountable are generally the most likely to grow. We interact with the Gen 2 survey on this edition of the program.
