The US church has lost 25% of attenders over the past 20 years. Many churches are reporting 50-60% pre-COVID attendance is back in the building. 43% of active church attenders do not strongly trust their church leaders. We are seeing a movement in the US, a movement of de-churched people. Let's talk about it.
Who are these de-churched people? Are there common characteristics or traits to consider? Why did they leave? What are they looking for? And maybe how can our churches utilize digital to re-engage them.
We're bringing in Dr. John Harris, Lead Pastor of Hearts Like His Church (a Digital Church), and surprise guest Jared Hughes, Lead Pastor of Hope City Church (also a Digital Church) in a conversation about recognizing and reaching the De-Churched.
