Statistics show that most people come to know Christ at around the age of 15. This has caused numerous churches to focus their evangelistic efforts on young people. The other statistic is that something like 85% of youth leave the church during their college years. What it makes me wonder about is our message.
When Jesus wrote in the sand and suggested the sinless ones cast the first stones, the oldest ones left first. It seems to me, an appropriately presented Gospel would have its greatest affect on 40 year olds.
Are we presenting the gospel effectively?
