Religious, spiritual, or neither? Which one are you? Send us your take on this new study.


A recent study found over half of millennials who grew up in church dropped out.

The study, conducted by Barna, a research group who tracks the role of faith in America, found that 59 percent of millennials have dropped out because they believe the church is irrelevant, they "feel God is missing in the church, or they have a sense that any doubt is prohibited."

An article on  Faithit by Sam Eaton cited the study and listed possible reasons for millennials ditching the church including:

  • Churches don't care what millennials think
  • They think churches should't need their own mission statement
  • Fighting poverty isn't priority
  • Cultures are constantly blamed by the older generation
  • They want to be mentored, not preached at
  • They want to feel valued
  • Failing to adapt, etc...

All in all many millennials are spiritual, but don't practice religion.
