Is Your Church Ignoring HALF of Your Town? Probably!
48% of all adults in America are unmarried. This is a seismic shift in our culture because in 1945 only 5% of all adults in America were unmarried.
Your church probably had much lower than 48% of your adult congregation represented by unmarried people yesterday. Why?
Are churches still doing ministry as if 95% of adults are married? Do unmarried people feel marginalized at church? Does the church unintentionally make single people feel less than complete? Is your church ignoring half of your town?
What changes should The Church make? Is reaching this demographic The Church’s next great challenge?
I don’t know the answers to any of these questions. But they seem like questions worth asking.
