Several hundred people are expected at the Forum, tonight, at USC's Taper Hall 101. Truli Media Group will be videotaping the Forum and posting it to the Truli.Net website this week.
The program summary for "Why They Leave," states: "Statistics say that 65-80% of young evangelicals graduate from Christian youth ministries and never return to church again. Christian leaders from all denominations recognize the hemorrhage in the American church, but as recent statistics tell us there is no sign of the exodus slowing. Jared Herd, author of More Lost than Found, travels extensively speaking to churches, young evangelicals, and consulting Christian organizations on the deeper issues behind why young evangelicals are leaving church.
"He also leads The Lumen Room, a company launching in January 2013 that creates and distributes spiritually themed content for those that like Jesus but not the church. On November 12, Jared Herd will be joining us to lead a discussion on his company The Lumen Room, the changing spiritual culture of the United States, where young evangelical disillusionment is coming from, and the future of Christianity in America."
