American Christianity is in a state of transition and controversy regarding millennials and their place in the church today. There have been many studies that have come out claiming that more young people are leaving the church than ever before while other studies are standing on the claim that there has always been large groups of young people leaving the church in every generation.
As a Millenial myself, I don't know how to respond to these claims. My assessment would be that things are much more complicated than a simple study or answer can supply. This is why I will be seeking to question, interview, write and process my own findings in pursuit of answers. My hope is that through the accounts of many young people of faith a picture of what is going on in the lives of millennials and the church at large would become clearer.
