Statistics on the US and Milwaukee

This past weekend in my message at Eastbrook Church entitled, “More,” I mentioned some statistics about the state of Christianity in the United States and also some statistics about Milwaukee. I am including those statistics here, along with the source for each, as a few people asked me for the specifics.

The United States:

  • Less than 20% attend church regularly
  • 50% of churches didn’t add one new person through conversion last year
  • 43,000 people are leaving every week
  • 100 years ago: 28 churches/10,000 people; Today: 11 churches/10,000 people
  • (source for above, Dave and Jon Ferguson, Exponential, page 14)
