The Unchurched

The Unchurched
Knowing where a typical unbeliever is coming from is the first step to connecting with them. Researcher Thom Rainer interviewed thousands of unchurched Americans and published the results in : The Unchurched Next Door. Many of the following findings may surprise you.
Most of the unchurched prefer to attend church on Sunday morning if they attend.
Most are not anti-church or anti-religion.
Most Americans have never been invited to church - never!
82 percent of the unchurched are at least "somewhat likely" to attend church if they are invited.
Two percent of church members invite an unchurched person to church.
Most of the unchurched feel guilty about not attending church.
Very few of the unchurched have had someone share with them how to become a Christian. And Christians have not been particularly influential in their lives.
The attitudes of the unchurched are not correlated to where they live, their ethnic or racial background or their gender.
Many of the unchurched are far more concerned about the spiritual well-being of their children than of themselves.
