Five major trends affecting churches in the US

Tom Rainer:
  1. Millennials are emerging as the largest generational mission field in over a century.

  2. Millennials are leaving the church not because they are angry but because "they do not deem us as meaningful or relevant."

  3. Boomers in perpetual denial over the loss of their youth will ignore senior adult ministries -- sending those ministries into "steep declines."

  4. Boomers will become more receptive to the gospel.

  5. Churches that expect to reach both Boomers and Millennials will reinvent themselves so that they are more family friendly.
