Study Shows Serving The Poor Leads To More Church Visitors

10/29/10

34% of Americans would visit a church with an active ministry to the poor in their community, while 31% indicate they would visit a church where several families in their neighborhood regularly attend. 25% would visit a church made up predominantly of young families with children, and just 13% would visit a local church made up predominantly of senior adults, finds a recent LifeWay Research study. Americans with graduate school educations (44%) are more likely than either high school graduates (32%) or college graduates (32%) to say they would visit a church helping the needy. 41% of women vs. 27% of men would be attracted to a church ministering to the poor.
