The church In America is shrinking.
According to countless studies and experts, the percentage of people with a church connection has consistently declined over the last two decades, and even more quickly in the past few years. The Barna group recently reported that currently only one in four Americans is a practicing Christian, and that even demographics that had historically been stable in their church affiliation (boomers and older adults) have dropped off precipitously. In urban areas like Los Angeles, this trend has been even more pronounced. It’s clear to everyone that we have entered a new era.
