UNCHURCHED DON’T VISIT IN PERSON


Unchurched adults interested in finding a church home aren’t nearly as likely to visit one in person as a church member who is shopping for a new congregation, claims LifeWay Research. Only 49% of unchurched adults would visit in-person if they were looking for a church vs. 83% of church-switchers. More than half of unchurched people would follow a recommendation from family, friends, neighbors or colleagues if they were looking for a church, but 24% wouldn’t use using any of these usual ways of finding one. While unchurched people are open to relationships, few church members are intentionally investing time developing relationships with non-Christians. Sadly, only 25% of church members profess to "spend time building friendships with non-Christians for the purpose of sharing Christ with them." 38% actually disagreed with the statement, and 36% were noncommittal about it. 25% of unchurched adults would use a church website or an Internet search tool to find a congregation to visit.
