The Barna Group issued their 2020 State of the Church report and one shocking data point is the decline in Christians in America.
In 2009 rough 50 percent of Americans considered themselves practicing Christians (attending church once within the past month).
11 years later and in 2020 the data shows that number at 25 percent.
They attribute this to the loss of young people. They found that 64 percent of young people who grew up in the church will walk away from the faith or from the local church.
