Why Young Adults Are Leaving the Church…

Chris Kiesling

Young adults are leaving the church in droves! The past one hundred years in North America have brought dramatic changes to how young people approach becoming an adult. Today, on many measures, this stage of life represents the least religious stage in the life course and now has many pastors, parents and campus ministers concerned. In this talk we will consider how and why young adults are largely absent from churches, and then point to ways to change this exodus.
