The program summary for "Why They Leave," states: "Statistics say
that 65-80% of young evangelicals graduate from Christian youth
ministries and never return to church again. Christian leaders from
all denominations recognize the hemorrhage in the American church,
but as recent statistics tell us there is no sign of the exodus
slowing. Jared Herd, author of More Lost than Found, travels
extensively speaking to churches, young evangelicals, and consulting
Christian organizations on the deeper issues behind why young
evangelicals are leaving church.
"He also leads The Lumen Room, a company launching in January 2013
that creates and distributes spiritually themed content for those
that like Jesus but not the church. On November 12, Jared Herd will
be joining us to lead a discussion on his company The Lumen Room, the
changing spiritual culture of the United States, where young
evangelical disillusionment is coming from, and the future of
Christianity in America."
