Interesting and amazing piece of information from “Minister To Others” by Richard Leach & David A. Wheeler:
Jerry Pipes has reported that “88 percent of those who grow up in our evangelical churches leave at age 18 and do not come back.” … However, the percentage of high-school graduates who leave church falls from 88 percent to less than 4 percent when youth serve others alongside their parents.
