As a church leader, you know your church should be reaching out to spiritual seekers. But how do you reach out to them? Who are seekers and what do they care about?
A new survey of U.S. spiritual “seekers” ages 25-49, conducted by Barna Group on behalf of United Methodist Communications, found that feeling welcomed was the top motivator in considering a church.
Other top factors are making friends and nurturing friendships (29%), support during difficult times (28%) and learning more about God (27%). Less motivating are opportunities for Bible study, volunteer opportunities, discussions of issues and topics and the provision of child care.
