The Rise of Churchless in America

Man in Church

Churchless people are all around us: among our closest loved ones, at our workplaces, in our neighborhoods.

And more and more, they are becoming the norm: The number of churchless adults in the US has grown by nearly one-third in the past decade.

Yet the startling truth is that many of these people claim they are looking for a genuine, powerful encounter with God-but they just don’t find it in church.

What are they (or we) missing?

How can we better reach out to them?

What can we say or do that would inspire them to want to join a community of faith?

Containing groundbreaking new research from the Barna Group, and edited by bestselling authors George Barna (Revolution) and David Kinnaman (You Lost Me), Churchless reveals the results of a five-year study based on interviews with thousands of churchless men and women.

Looking past the surface of church attendance to deeper spiritual realities, Barna and Kinnaman show us how we can understand those who choose not to be part of a church, build trust-based relationships with them, and be empowered to successfully invite them to engage.
