How Old Are The People In Your Denomination

I thought this was interesting. Note the Southern Baptist Convention line –

  • 13% are 18-29,
  • 28% are 30-49,
  • 33% (the largest proportion) are 50-64,
  • and those 65+ are 27% of its members.
  • Well over half are over 50.

None of this is really surprising.  Historically, most faithful church members are middle age and above.  Younger people have never, by and large, been active in church life.  As people come to the point in their lives where they have fewer tomorrows and more yesterdays, their minds turn towards eternity.
