Studies show that our culture is becoming increasingly more “spiritual” and yet church attendance is steadily decreasing. In political arenas, the gap is widening with more friction and ill-will every year. While Christians consider love, charity and sacrifice to be core values, why do the unchurched characterize us as mean-spirited, intolerant, self-centered, and irrelevant? Somewhere there is a disconnect. As part of her work with by design ministries, Kristi has been interviewing millennial women who have left the church (including some who have returned) and will be sharing about factors that influence whether someone retains or jettisons their faith, as well as ways that we can effectively communicate the outrageously good news of the gospel.
