Take a look at these two Factoids


Factoid #1: "At least three of every five elected officers (a voting majority) should have a Great Commission conscience." Source: (Win Arn, "How to Use Ratios to Effect Church Growth", in Wagner, C. Peter, ed. Church Growth: State of the Art. Wheaton, IL: Tyndale, 1986, ch. 8, p. 102. )

Factoid #2: "In [2009], 15% of Americans say they are "unaffiliated," up from 8% in 1990. It’s an even more pronounced change among young people — 46% of people ages 18 to 34 consider themselves to have "no religion," according to the American Religious Identification Survey by the Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society & Culture at Trinity College." Source: (Advertising Age. ˇ°Churches Get Religion on Marketing.ˇ± Beth Snyder Bulik. (http://www.adage.com). May 15, 2009. )
