Grace and peace to you! I thought I would share some research I thought was interesting especially in light of our annual meeting and all the talk about being the church "out there" beyond our walls. This research comes from Barna Group, a research firm that is "widely considered to be a leading research organization focused on the intersection of faith and culture." This article showcases the top 10 findings of their research throughout 2014, complete with helpful info-graphics.
Just to highlight a couple that I found interesting: First is about world poverty, and the huge amount that it has decreased in the last 30 year, and yet American's don't believe that is the case. Why is that? Lastly the research that looks at what Millenials want in a church. (you can find more about their generational distinctions here: Barna Glossary of Terms).
