Why Do Church Members Leave in 2020?

On the other hand, what makes them leave? Believe it or not, it’s not politics or music. The majority of devoted church members (48%) only leave if they have to move to a new home.

  • Pastor leaves (12%)

      Some Christians who may not have a church they like nearby or had a bad experience at a previous church haven’t given up on their faith. Instead, the Pew Research study found that 37% of Americans who rarely or never attend church, practice their faith in other ways. This shows that having a presence online could be beneficial to reaching those Christians.

    Depends why they are there and if that need is being met. I expect most need to be involved in a small group or house group to make the connections that will keep them in church.
