THE GROWTH OF THE “NONE”

Since 1972, the number of people in the US who claim to have no religion has increased by 360%. While all Christian groups have declined or plateaued, the “nones” have been steadily growing by 1–1.5 percentage points every two years.

This growth doesn’t just include young adults responding to the survey for the first time; it also represents Christians who are abandoning their faith. The reasons are vast and varied.

But one thing we all have in common are questions about this life: Why am I here? Do I matter? Why is there so much pain in the world?

THE QUEST FOR ANSWERS

It can be hard to try to find answers to these questions. There’s a lot of confusing information out there, and frankly, a lot of people who want others to make a decision they may not be ready for.

That’s why we strive to meet people where they are on their faith journey. Whether someone has recently been hurt by the Church or they lead a weekly Bible study, they and their questions deserve to be treated respectfully.

And they should be able to find easy-to-understand, credible answers.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

As of today, it costs $0.13 to take one person from asking a question into the void of Google to a safe space where they can discover answers.

A monthly gift of $10 could translate into 923 people finding the answers they need every year. A one-time gift of $25 would help 192 people discover the truth they’re searching for.
